I hope you're enjoying your three-hour lunch and all of those consult fees, Cindy and friends.
These people refuse to answer emails, and keep their out-to-lunch answering message on ALL DAY. The answering service does not even take messages, so if you want to talk to these silly girls, you had better march on down to the office yourself.
It's a shame, because I was ready to schedule with Evangelisti, because he's a good doctor. It's a shame that his employees are smearing his good name because they can't be bothered to do their VERY simple jobs.
What this is is a fee-pocketing scheme. Take the $100 consult fee, and even when the patient calls several times, sends 3 emails, and BEGS for a response, do not provide one. Why snatch $100 when you could have been paid in full for the actual operation?
If you cannot handle the very easy task of handling the telephone and emails, you are certainly NOT qualified to even take my temperature.
Absolutely class-less and inexcusable behavior. Thank God I didn't schedule with this circus.
