They waste pts time. You take time from work for exam, speak to staff about Rx and still they don't address it. I have had problems with my Rx for 3 MONTHS!!!! The office staff stands around gossiping while pts wait to be helped. On multiple occasions I've taken time off from work to get to a dispensary only to find his office did not update the Rx. I work for a living and they get well paid by insurance plus a co-pay. He a good doc but his clerical staff is unprofessional!!!!!
