Dr was very condescending. Did not get answers to our problem because she thought it was unnecessary. Obviously, I thought it was since I made an appointment.

The last question was not applicable. When I took my son for his 4 month shots, the receptionist asked if I'd like to schedule his 6 month visit. We scheduled it 2 months in advanced, got time off of work andmade the appropriate accommodations. I showed up the day of the appointment only to wait for the nurse to tell me that we were scheduled for a day too early. His shots could be given but they wouldn't count and would have to be redone. Now I have to make accommodations again to come another day, and they weren't willing to work with me to fit me in since it was their error. I called the rescheduling line to see if we could be notified in case of cancellations. I was told that it is he patients responsibility to call every 30 min to an hour to check. This is disappointing because it's the offices responsibilty to review your chart and schedule appropriately. I
