Truly awful practice. Came in to get school forms filled out and they managed to mess that up both times I went in. Didn't read the forms and just filled out "what they could." Bedside manner was cold and disorganized. Not a fan.

Wasted my time by not providing the care I made an appointment for. Saw the dr. in her office for about 2 seconds and the rest of the time her staff just made notes about things that I wasn't there for. They refused to perform the service I had gone in for and said they can do it on another visit even though her staff NEVER advised me of this when I called for the appointment. After wasting my time off work, NOT PROVIDING ANY SERVICE, they then refused to refund my co-pay. HORRIBLE.
