AVOID THIS PRACTICE! I am a patient that they made wait 3 weeks for an appt while in pain and vomiting blood. They lied to us and made us go to ER where we waited 6 hours and were told that no, those procedures (scope, scan) ARE NOT done in ER, only at or by the practice. They are heartless and soulless and not to be trusted.
