    The staff was rude and clearly unhappy to be there. I got a nasty look for not rushing my toddler into the exam room just to be asked "what are you here for?" The doctor spent all of 5 minutes with us, wrote several prescriptions, and seemed annoyed to answer questions about them. He had no interest in our history or my concerns. We will not be back.

    Awful. I`ve never felt like a medical facility was so poorly orchestrated. The nurse didn't ask me ANY questions except for quickly "So why are you here?" and then just left the room..I filled out paperwork for a reason? Then when visiting with the doctor, he was ready with a prescription pad before even talking to me. I was told I had my problem "because you`re a woman". He LAUGHED at me when I spoke about researching on my own. Waited 3 mo. for THIS? Left feeling sad,deflated, poor& desperate.
