    Staff was extremely polite and professional during my visit. Dr Barletta was great. My only complaint is that Dr Matthew Ammerman has never received a report from you on my EMG. I gave Dr Barletta the order from Dr Ammerman and he took it up front and said they would send him a report. It has been over a month now and Dr Ammerman has not received anything. I called last week wanting a copy sent to my primary care doctor Dr George Wathen and lady was very rude and said Dr Wathen would have to call and request a copy. A test is no good if the doctors cannot get a copy of the results.
