Patient Comments (1)
Elizabeth, NJ |
He walked in the room did not speak or introduce himself. He does not believe in alternative medicine. Was annoyed with me asking questions about future procedures. Prescribed me medicine that causes long term side effects without explaining the risks Front desk reception rude I waited exactly 1 hour and 40 minutes for my appointment
