Unprofessional for new patients

I was looking for a new PCP and called the office to see if he was accepting new patients. Got a "maybe" as the answer and was then asked a number of questions, mainly about why I was leaving my previous doctor; (for a couple of good reasons.) I was told that they would check with the doc and get back to me. It's been a week and I haven't had the courtesy of a return call. I actually don't mind so much if they don't want me as a patient, but to not call back and let me know after promising to do so is very unprofessional.
