I made my appointment with Dr. Assina in June when my back pain left me unable to walk more than once a week. I was given an appointment at the end of July but Dr. Assina cancelled on me four times now, once for a meeting and three times because he decided he wasn't coming into the office that day. Three of the cancellations I was told less then 24 hours in advanced and then re-scheduled for a month or so later. It has now been almost four months since I called and my first appointment still isnt for another month. A few weeks ago I asked his staff to email him explaining the unbearable pain I am in and to ask for a more accommodating appointment. They told me they would get back to me by the end of the week and I still haven't heard from them and they have not returned any of my messages.
