Trying to reach anyone is a joke. You either get put on hold indefinitely, transferred to a mailbox that is full or they take down a message but you never get a call back. Their front desk staff is AWFUL.

Absolutely the worst experience of any doctors office in my life. & I too am a physician. 3 hour waiting in the waiting room with no response from the front desk. Very rude and disrespectful staff. No running water in the bathroom. Highly unprofessional and hygienic. Stay away.
