in Dover, NJ |
Dr Freed is very courteous, on the contrary the office staff is very rude and did not feel it is necessary to communicate to the patient if her insurance has denied her appointment, even after I called the office in the morning spoke to staff Anita at 11.25 am to confirm the appointment. they make me go all the way to the office at 5.30 to say that the insurance has denied it. When I ask how come I was not informed the secretary says its not my responsibility to call the patient.

Always requested dr Susan. If we couldn't see her we would wait till we could. We are looking her up due to a terrible experience with another dr at her previous employment
