Not so good. Offers no counseling, nor any referral to counseling, not interested in hearing my problems. Only interested in prescribing drugs. Office staff rarely in office, slow to respond to requests for prescription renewal or appointments. I find this collection of all 5 star reviews to be very misleading, and possibly fraudulent.
