I had a poor experience with my first and will be only visit at this office. I waited over 20 minutes to be seen (after waiting almost 4 months to even get an appointment). She saw me for a mere 12 minutes and ushered me out quickly, where I felt much more like business than a patient. I went to pick-up my prescriptions today and it turns out that she only sent in 1 of the 3 we discussed as my treatment plan.
