If you schedule an appointment, be prepared to at least be there for 2 hours minimum. My last appointment was at 8am and I wasn't seen until 9. I was the first appointment of their day. The wait time gets worse from there. I made an appointment to get a referral due to insurance change. The office was aware that my referral was needed for two business days later. I called the following day and was told they hadn't done it yet and were doing it then. They still haven't made the referral.

She is really understanding and took the time to listen and talked to me in a way I could understand and found out what was going on with me and fixed it.

Dr Bigham and her students are like an assembly line with no Quality control.. They don't take the time to properly make sure your getting the right treatment. There were 6 patients that walked out of her office just two days ago I observed while I was in the waiting room. One of her nurses seen me and said that my focus problem was due to adhd and since the sample of Straterra wasn't working they wrote me a prescription for adderal which I really didn't want. Now I'm flagged the day I left dr
