Patient Comments (2)
Oak Creek |
after being in the office for over an hour and a half I was rudely told I had no appointment for this procedure , at that point I was rudely escorted out of the office and asked to leave. No explanation was given. I left of my own accord.
in Oak Creek, WI |
My experience with Dr. Alpren was far less then satisfactory, his sincerity about his concerns for patients rights seems to be more reteric then real sincerity. His inability to respond to my calls left me with a real sense of disconnect and a lack of need to respond in a timely manner. I'm still waiting for that return call after 36 hours of waiting.
