Horrible Primary Doctor

Dr. Karuna is a horrible doctor and person. My mom was diagnosed in ER @ QOTV hospital with gallbladder attack. So surgeon recommended Blood work and EKG. While my mom was there Dr. Karuna saw her and said" What is she doing here. She doesn't have an appointment" . The nurse said no my mom was there for EKG. Dr. Karuna said "I will sign order and view EKG, but I am not seeing her". This was all heard by my mother who was in pain. My mom has been a patient of Dr. Karuna for many years, before that my father was a patient. Well my mother has had enough. She will be looking for a new Primary Doctor. Nobody deserves to put up with that.
