The team in place that schedules new patient consultations at Coastal VVC is not trained to be customer centric. I made an appointment for a consultation several weeks ago for varicose veins after finding it through DocFind. A receptionist called me last week & cancelled it because she said the Doctor would not be in that day. She then transferred me to a voice mail last Wednesady to reschedule. I left a message on Wednesday and called again on Friday & still have not heard back.
