    Dr. Worx was very impudent and non responsive to patient concerns. There was an extensive wait time in the office. The whole setting resembles an assembly line. I think that when you have to wait so long that they bring you snack crackers that it is getting just a little on the overbooked to get more money side. We were half way home when I noted that my husband still had his IV in his arm. I would not recommend this office to anyone. they are only interested in the money!!!
