Patient Comments (2)
in Clover, SC |
The doctor could not be bothered to read test results from a CT scan done on a Monday and call with results. On Wednesday the patient called in and was told she would call them by the end of the day. Thursday , the patient calls again, and is told The doctor is off today and will be in Tomorrow. The CT scan was done due to a possible Mini Stroke, and the patient is 84 years old. This doctor is inconsiderate and these actions are unacceptable. I cannot recommend First Care to anyone.
We are sorry that this occurred and that there was some confusion with your messages and call backs. If you have not yet received a call back with the results, please call our office manager.

This Dr is awful. I have copies of my notes, and am horrified to see she said I EXAGGERATED at one of my appointments. That's after she pretty much punched me in the stomach on a visit a few months back. The staff here at First Care are rude, unhelpful and couldn't care less if you are seen, given the wrong information or leave as you've waited so long. On one appt a few weeks back I was there for a total of 4 hours, another we left after an hour and a half. When asked why I shook my head..
