Patient Comments (1)
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Had someone call to say he needed to see me sooner than planned after Labs done. Was leaving for NYC for eight days. No call back. Turned out to be elevated blood sugar, but left me hanging for my whole vacation. Wife complained of knee pain. Treated with drugs and injections, but never even did an X-Ray. It turned out she was bone on bone, and needed knee replacement. very poor follow up on perscription refill requests.
