Patient Comments (8)

This doctors office staff is extremely unhelpful and uninformed. They do not answer their phones and have little to no concern for the patients well being. I do not recommend this facility based on the staff.

I have called the office every day for over a week to tryto schedule an appointment. The receptionist asked to take my number but never called me back, I was put on hold for over 30 minutes and then disconnected, and received an answering machine a number of times with no calls ever returned.

I found all this out after I had been to the ER...more
