Your opinion: In your opinion the above listed items were not checked. They may have been without you realizing it. What were you told after the exam? Do you have problems or not? It was your first visit... If you don't have faith in your provider, now is the time to change. Calling to complain will not change your opinion.. You will never trust them.
