    They were unable to give me an invoice for my insurance when I had my first appointment 4 weeks ago there. They have promised me to sent it by mail, but they did not.So I have countless called and e-mailed (CC. to Dr. Connell) and I have also sent a fax and a letter by snail mail.But LORI is not taking care of me, so still no bill, without invoice I do not get my money back from my insurance. BTW I had just 2 weeks waiting time for an appointment, they are not very busy, now I know why.

    Being a patient for 20+ years has given me the opportunity to learn & grow with Dr. O'Connell ~ She's seen me through the birth of my first child & now she see's my daughter. Best office! I love the newer staff! They are all upbeat & always make me feel welcome!

    i have been a patient for the last 5 years, the staff has changed in that time, they are now usless, never answer the phones, do not deal with script requests in a timely manner, do not call back, the person who is the doctors assistant is rude, condescending and sarcastic and should not be dealiing with the general public,very sad that this doctor had allowed this to take place,
