    No understanding of different circumstances, rude staff, dirty and small office, long wait hours. NOT worth it.

    The staff there have real bad attitudes, put you on wait on the phone only to answer the phone and tell you to wait several more times, they hang up on you when you say you have a question and Dr Tapp is pretty incompetent, doesn't listen to you about what's going on with you.
