Patient Comments (2)
in st petersburg, fl |
While her English is excellent, there was a 'communication problem' early on. After a year I switched Medicare providers and found a new PCP. Staff was great but they did not last long, constant turn over of key office staff and PA's & nurse practitioners... all of whom I liked and felt well cared for by. Dr. C. does not like to have her advice questioned & I felt she resented it when I questioned her. Due to improper coding for lab work, I'm hoping that 90 days later billing will be corrected
