Office staff can be very rude, especially when scheduling. I do NOT recommend this office. It's unfortunate because Dr. Cherry seems like a good physician.

Went to his Quick Care because they told me they were in my plan. They billed me as a new patient under Dr Cherry even though I saw the nurse practitioner in Quickcare. So instead of a $25 copay it cost me 101.00. I called and they said that I should have called my insurance and that a receptionist can't know all plans. Then u should not have told me it was covered!!!! Feel this is bate and switch ! I u will lie to a patient you can't be trusted in anything.

Dr Brent Cherry is extremely knowledgeable medical doctor. He takes the time to speak with you about your symptoms and to ask you the right questions and then prescribe the right medicine. I have been a patient for 1 1/2 years since moving down here.
