Patient Comments (2)
Ashburn, VA |
Unfortunately our experience was poor. I went in for an appointment that ended with the decision to schedule surgery. The office was supposed to call back within 24 hours to schedule. A week later I called to schedule the surgery and was rudely told I needed to wait for them to call. Five weeks later the office called to confirm my appointment which I never scheduled. The surgery was urgent and I had already seen another provider. Extremely unprofessional and I would not recommend.
