Abrupt, it helpful. For n 87 year old woman with Medicare and CASH. Obviously don't need business. Or want to help people. Despite being referred by a doctor at Emory. No, the Frau. gatekeeper has no phone, much less bedside manner. Is this what medical care has become? Doctors may be wonderful, but hey should learn a bit about as if customer service. Despite reviews like his, most likely will shrug it off as just bad grapes. Never even had a chance at reviewing the medical practice.
