Never sent a referral that was requested 3 times! – My daughter was referred to a specialist by her pcp at William Penn Family Practice. As soon as I made the appointment I called WPFP for a referral to be faxed over, and I was assured that it would be done. A month went by, and three days prior to the specialist appt, I got a call from the specialist's office that they never received a referral. I called WPFP and requested the referral again. Three days later, I took my daughter to her spec. appointment and when we arrived there we were told that they still never received the referral and they would not see my daughter without it! I called WPFP right away and told the receptionist to fax over the referral IMMEDIATELY and the response I got was "I'll fax it over when I get around to it. All of the other office workers called in sick today and I'm the only one here." We waited and waited and no fax. Finally I was told that the only way they would see my daughter was if I signed a waiver form stating that I would pay for the appointment out of pocket because they never sent the referral! We already waited a month for that appointment and I wasn't about to reschedule it, so I had no choice but to sign the form and pay.
Dr. does not get back to me..was not too happy with help – Had blood work done 3 weeks ago, no one got back to me .
Had questions on my perscription...2 days to get back to me.
Finally called them ..to ask if the percription should be taken along with another perscription (2 antibiotics) ..recpetionist said " the Dr. Perscribed it ...yes) I did not feel comfortable with her answer...called back and asked Dr. on call ..Finally Dr called back ...told me only take the new antibiotic..not both! If I had listen to the hired help, I would have been taking double dose of Antibiotics.
waiting for my sons file to be transferred since last year! – I ordered my sons records to be transferred to his new doctor august of last year and nothing!! they are so hard to get a hold of, their hours of operation are wacky!!! the doc is very nice but he needs new staff and office manager as they are very unorganized!! I need my son's file for his immunizations for school!!
Doctor is good....but then need to hire better help – The doctor is nice and understanding....but the receptionists are lacking...never get a call back...did not know how to get to location (She did not even know the building next to her was L&D Automotive.....right next door!)
THe always seem like you are bothering them.
Good doctor--too much overbooking – This doctor is very intelligent, and personable but it's more than obvious that he overbooks because I had an appointment for my 1 1/2 year old son at 5 pm and weren't seen until 7 pm. I've tried to call and schedule appointments and get referrals, and I'm put on hold for at least 15 minutes. I never get a call back when I leave a message. The receptionists are not at all friendly. Out of necessity this is my son's doctor, but I will defiinitely soon find a place that is a little more considerate in general with everything.
