This office is very unorganized. .His staff is rude and made numerous billing errors. Also this doctor acts rushed; seems like he books more patients than he can appropriately handle. Do not go to this provider.

I am very sorry that you felt that way. Please feel free to contact our practice manager to voice your concerns. We do use a third party billing company that handles all of the billing so I am sorry if our staff was unable to handle those questions for you. They should have directed you to that company to handle those issues.
