My right shoulder was successfully fixed by another doc 5 years ago and hasn't given me any issues since.

Font office staff is terrible! When I booked my initial appointment last week the receptionist asked me what type of insurance I have, HMO or PPO? I replied saying "I actually have an EPO." She said that was fine. She asked me if I had their address. I read off an address to her. She stated that was their old address and she gave me their new one. She FAILED to mention they're located in the Urgent Care clinic. I arrive and she states that they don't take EPOs
