Patient Comments (1)
Westport, CT |
The lack of professionalism I experienced with Dr. Gettler & staff was just horrendous and terrifying. I was yelled at, hung up on and put on hold because of THEIR error. I was upset because no one ever followed up with me or my insurance company so when I called to ask for an explanation as it was well over 6 months and about 5 phone calls later I was given the run around. I would NEVER recommend this practice to anyone, save yourself the trouble and find a doctor who cares about his patients!!
