Self-verified patient of Dr. Joseph R Armstrong - Posted on February 21st, 2012
The nurses & staff were very nice. No prep exam was done before procedure. They didn't even take my husband's blood pressure & he has a heart condition. He "passed out" which appeared to be more like a seizure in that he went stiff & had a blank stare, which is NOT what happens when someone faints. Dr. was very nonchalant & brushed it off as nothing.
