Patient Comments (2)
San Diego, CA |
Dr Tutuncu was incredibly unprofessional in multiple visits. She is rude, abrupt, and condescending. In addition she rarely let my wife or I finish a thought without interrupting. We waited the first visit almost 45 minutes without seeing the physician, and then had15 minutes to hurriedly run through symptoms and an "assessment" due to the clinic closing. When asking questions regarding physician's diagnosis, Dr.Tutuncu suggested we "get a new rheumatologist."
