Patient Comments (1)
in Houston, TX |
She has the worst most unprofessional, unethical, tacky, S L O W moving turtles move faster than those group of lazy women ever. You constantly not beg for help over the phone, Dr is ok but her office staff from the office manager to the bottom of the staff is just horrible, I'll never recommend this place.
