I had emergency situations occur after two treatments where performed at the clinic. In both cases I called the doctors office during office hours and was told by the staff members there was no one available to help me with the situation and the doctor would return my call with in 24 to 48 hours. In both cases I rushed to the hospital and treated by the Boca Raton hospital staff. I never got a call back in from the doctor in both cases. it's Unconscionable that there was no doctor on call when my doctor was not available

Reviewed on Jun 19, 2020

The experience was very good, the technology worked seamlessly. My only comment is that it is in the patient's best interested if the patient takes the time prior to schedule teleconference to long hand write out all questions that he or she may have for the doctor. I inadvertently forgot to ask the doctor a couple of questions I had that only came to mind immediately after the teleconference ended.
