Patient Comments (1)
in Waco, TX |
He is a good doctor but I had a bad experience with his staff. I was injured and in another town and needed my records to get in to see a doctor. After 4 days, I still did not have records and called them back. Tammy in his office was very rude and said that they were allowed to take 30 days to give me my records and I couldn't complain. Zero sympathy or caring from his staff. You can be injured for 30 days and can't see a doctor because you can't get your records and they don't care.
