Janelle is very unprofessional and rude! Refused to work with insurance company on pre-authorization for child's medication. Very rude to everyone involved trying to get medication process done. Going to another Doctor. Avoid at all cost!!!!

Marie is rude. Never informs us when our insurance referrals expired until we arrive. WE have to call insurance to fax something right then or she threatens they won't see us, regardless of whether we have taken off of work. The final/last visit my husband asked her to talk to the insurance company...more

Dr Duggar is a fantastic physician. He has been my children's physician for almost 25 years. He is a concerned caring man. Too much to put on here. But he can be brutally honest. And I'm ok with that!
