She was not respectful and very judgmental, I had questions and concerns but when i asked her a question she gave me a surprised look and just turned around as if it was a stupid questions and she did not take my health seriously and the medical assistant are incompetent and don't do their job when it comes to getting your prescriptions and authorizations.
