    Very overbooked. Long wait times for scheduled appointments. Used to have 3 doctors and 2 physician's assistants. Now just 2 doctors and no P.A.s, with seemingly more patients. Exams are very brief / superficial. Little communication during visits. Test results given by office staff over the phone, if at all. If you actually want to talk to a doctor about test results, you have to make another appointment/pay another copay. Calls/messages left for test results often go un-returned.

    Not very good at properly diagnosing illnesses. He gets you in and out of his office as quickly as possible. Another over booked physician who has forgotten why he entered the medical field. He used to be good but like so many doctors now, lost his way. Office staff, for the most part, is also cold and rude. Stay away from this practice,

    Has been my family doctor since I was a kid. Been to him around 4 times over the past 6 years or so. Prescribed medication that just didn't work at all each time, misdiagnosed what I had twice. Likes to keep his appointments as short as possible and is very vague with his diagnosis and doesn't really clarify what exactly the problem is and just hands you a prescription. I'll be switching doctors next time I need to make an appointment.
