    Staff was downright rude. Receptionist texting instead of assisting those waiting. Wait was ridiculous. Once in doctor took forever to come into exam room. Not pleased with this practice. Will find better.

    The wait was almost comical. over an hour and 20 minutes. No apology. Receptionist on facebook the whole time, as I stood up to ask at the desk every 15 minutes could clearly see this. Staff was unfriendly and grumpy. Bad karma in that office. Getting a new doctor FAST.

    Longest waiting I have ever done. Never returns phone calls. Rushed and appears not interested in patient well being. Switched doctors after second visit.

    "Do No Harm", Hippocrates? Then stay clear of this physician. She has made two drastic negligent mistakes in my care. I am filing charges and changing physicians. AVOID like the plague.
