Patient Comments (2)

Would make appointment to see Dr and it was always with PA who was very patronizing. Kept telling me shoulder was ok. Went to another Doctor and I had a piece of loose bone in my muscle.

Showed up over one hour LATE. Offered no apology for lateness nor explanation. Showed no empathy for situation AT ALL. Didn't help me off elevated exam table, knowing I was in a lot of pain. When I cried in frustration all he did was hand me a box of kleenex. No reassuring words offered. Very...more
