I think one star is way too much for this office, Karmen, the lady who works in the front doesn't know what she is doing there, My brother is suffering with severe pain in his hip and needs to do a surgery ASAP! He can't walk, and it's getting worse by the minute. We went to this Dr. so he refer us to take the MRI. and been told that we need an authorization. After waiting for days and weeks, every time we called this office, she (Karmen), would say we have to wait for authorization (
