Though I never met Dr. Grainger, he was responsible for reading the results of my sleep study. Despite repeated calls to the sleep center and my referring doctor it took more than 6 weeks to get results and a second specialist to get the information. Honestly have to wonder if it was even looked at or just moved off his desk. Never experienced such unprofessional behavior and resent that I will be billed for his services! Not even a call or apology from his office for the extreme delay.
