Self-verified patient of Dr. Joseph A Stafford - Posted on November 1st, 2018
My husband and I have been with Dr Stafford for 3 years. He is gracious, personable and most importantly, he excels as a internist. However, the front desk personal is anything but personable. She may be very efficient managing the office which I understand is difficult and stressful but she should not be interacting with patients. She has an attitude of either my way or not it all. It is crucial to make patients feel comforted and to show an understanding of their situation. She shows a great lack of patience. It is unfortunate that Dr Stafford is surrounded and protected by these type of people. She may like her job but she certainly does not portray that to his clients.
