Patient Comments (1)
in Hephzibah GA |
My neurogolists had sent test results over to Dr. Duffin, after waiting for two months for an appointment, he did not have the results, had not read my chart, did not come in to see me with the chart, nor the paperwork I did in the office. He didn't know I was already on medication for pain, he didn't know my medical history. He was totally unprepared and after I told him about it. He said "I'm not here to fix you". I said you've got that shingle with your name on it stating your profession.
