    Been going here for several years. Rarely saw Dr Smith, but was happy with the rest of the medical staff. THEY SOLD! No notice to their existing patients. Dr Smith apparently retired from practice. Dr Chang is amazing. PROBLEM: hubby has been very ill. They referred him to have an ultra sound. He had it. Almost 2 weeks ago! No call from office, no answer when we call them, every day. No return call for the MANY messages we've left. Husband continues to get worse, losing weight daily.

    Business has been sold, doctors left, stay away! After having bad experiences with United Healthcare and Banner health I found this practice with a 4 1/2 star rating. Called them for an appointment and nearly fainted when I got in the next day. However after going there 3 times for appointments I never saw the doctor even once, just the PA's and it was s different one each time. Last time went over when they didn't answer the phone and it was chaos!

    Dr Smitt is amazing. Diane at the front desk is likely the most rude, inconsiderate, heinous individual I have ever encountered in a care setting. For that reason, I will never go back she ruins Dr. Smiths good name and clinic, just awful.
