Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, NY |
It was the worst experience ever. Excessively long wait time. One I finally got to see the doctor he spent all of five minutes with me , never asked me about my medical history or medications I was currently taking yet he prescribed me medication which I had to consult with my PCP before taking it. When it came time for a refill I was unable to get the Dr to call me or the Pharmacist back( left several messages with his answering service) because he sent over the wrong dose of medication.
