Rarely looks at you during visit. Doesn't listen. Inappropriate care; does not review nor keep up with medications family physician orders. Says call if you need appt., before next return; requested visit, staff will not schedule visit. When walked in, was eventually seen but Dr. did not listen. Medication was stopped abruptly with no tapering. All of meds was always taken as ordered by Dr. Had been prescribed this med for years. Even drug screen revealed only on prescribed meds. Negligent care
