Patient Comments (4)

The wait is ridiculous and does not have a primary doctor feel. Each time I come in I want to request my co- payment back and leave!!! I’ve waited over two hours and I just think that’s really excessive. When the staff is leaving for the day and you’re still waiting. Terrible customer service...more
