The doctor is fine. Office staff, not so much

They sent labs out of state without verifying insurance coverage, so we got socked with a $500 bill. Also, they say they'll do thing "today," but it doesn't get done. Very frustrating.

Poor follow up & Office staff disorganized & rude.

Being in the healthcare field myself, I understand how difficult and demanding it can be. At the same time, I am not a person who typically complains about my experiences, but when it comes to patient care you better know what you are doing and follow-up. Ever heard of urine results taking over 2 weeks to come back from a lab? Me neither. Then getting the run-a-round and the promise of a call back that never comes. I should have listened to my family when they told me to go to UCLA to get this problem handled in the first place. Well now I am and next time you can bet I will.
