in Manchester Township, NJ |
Because of a VERY painful cyst on my finger that developed over the weekend I tried to get to see Dr.Laforgia. His office (and later he personally backed this action) refused to give me an appt in less than 2 weeks unless they had a cancellation. They did have a cancellation 30 hours later and he did see me, only to tell me I had to go to a hand Dr. His justification was he never wants his patients that have an appt to have to wait while he takes care of an emergency. REALLY??
