Patient Comments (1)
Lafayette, LA |
My mom is a patient of Dr. Borchow. I take her to her appointments for her eye shots. As much as I understand that he may be a very reputable doctor, it is absolutely unacceptable that patients, most of which are elderly, sit for EVERY appointment for an average of 2 1/2 to 3 hours waiting to be seen. Never experienced anything like it in my life!
