Patient Comments (2)
Santa Maria, CA |
Walked out after Alta Ortho in Solvang kept us waiting over 90 minutes- we weren't the only patients who left because we were fed up with waiting. They didn't bother telling us he was running late until about 45 minutes after we were supposed to be seen. Apparently this is NORMAL for this doctor. Our time is obviously not valued by Alta Orthopedics in Solvang. We will be sending them a bill for the work my husband missed as a result of their ineptitude.
