Thank you for you feedback!

in Glendale, CA |
I was assigned Dr Abovian through my insurance. I been really sick with the flu and wanted to call in for an appointment today. Receptionist informed me that Dr has no apts. available today, he's not working on Fridays because it's his paper work day and they are closed on weekends. Needless to say I need to find a different Dr. one that actually wants to work and see patients.
