Patient Comments (1)
in Delray Beach, FL |
when i entered the office, the girl at desk jokingly yet seriously reprimanded my giving her my signed papers folded up, as if before i arrived i shouldve opened the papers up and took out all the wrinkles; doc is a nice guy but i just felt he showed no curiosity about my stuffed ear after we determined the ear was cleaned--when i asked whats going on he simply said he didnt know and that was the extent of it; the other nurse, upon leaving had pounded her desk after hanging up on a patient.
