HOW can it be OK to make mental patients (or any paying patient) wait for over 2 hours EVERY TIME they come!!!
When I left her office I had no clue as to what she wanted me to do. She wanted me to go for several kinds of testing but I left her office with only one referral. I asked her office staff and they would not go ask her. I will not be returning to her office. I'm all for the testing but I am not comfortable with a doctor who is not clear in their instruction. Yes, I asked her to repeat what she wanted me to do but there was still no clear answer.
