After the blood work review completed, the doctor didn't have a time to look at my illness because this visit is for preventing maintenance but I received a bill for regular office charge.

I loved my experience with Dr. Nelson. Finding the office is a little confusing (his name/name of his practice is not on the placard by the door) and the office changed the time of my appointment without checking with me, but I luckily had a flexible afternoon. The scheduling service that they use to send automated emails is also confusing, as it only lists the address for Dr. Nelson's Lithia Springs practice, and I had to call to confirm that I was expected at the Buckhead office. However, everything with the appointment was lovely- Dr. Nelson was unbelievably personable and I felt as though he genuinely wanted to get to know me. He offered me different options for what brought me in, and answered all of my questions. I would absolutely recommend him!

My visit was fine, but the follow-through has been awful. It's been over a month and I haven't been able to follow-up about the results of the labwork or ultrasounds that were ordered. I have made two separate appointments on Zocdoc with this doctor and had them both cancelled by the doctor's office. I'm beyond ready to know my results.
