I call to refill scripts and been told numerous times I do not take that med. Even though I've been on it for several years. Dr. seems scatterbrained sometimes and either seems rushed or just forgets. They even goes as far to ask who prescribed the meds and it's Dr. Morris.

Review for Dr. Shelley Morris, DO

Dr. Schmeltz is a very good Doctor has helped me with my health but the staff lacks in so many ways they do not follow through with what the patients needs plus always put on hold for at least 15 minutes or longer.
