Patient Comments (2)
Gilbert, AZ |
This office is overbooked for 1 doctor. Approximately 20 patients appointments are scheduled within 1hr so you'll expected to wait 2-3hrs. Dr only spent about 5mins face time with the patient. Making patient comes in for unnecessary exam when dr. order test but have no record of what was being ordered. Test results not available yet and still scheduled patient to come which cost more out of pocket cost for unnecessary visits. Overall, definitely needed better scheduling process
Scottsdale, AZ |
Appears to be capable and friendly. Front desk staff kind and very helpful with the older clientle. Nice to see in action. Personnel doing the testing was efficient but passive aggressive. Next time I would stop and ask for another person (in hindsight). The only reason this would be important for the doctor is that in order to get good information from the patient one needs to not alienate the customer. It might be better to find a job more suitable.
