Doctors office is in a neighborhood, no one seems to know what going on, the billing lady is only in on Fridays and many Fridays shes not there. So if you have any sort of billing issue, it could take weeks to resolve. They don't respond to emails. Most phone calls go to voicemail even during business hours. Their website is made from a blogging template...literally nothing about this place is professional. When doing a test, I asked the lab guy why I was doing a certain thing and he was like 'lady, all I know is that I mix this with that and I have no idea why...but it supposedly tells us if you have something or not'. What a joke, seriously! I highly doubt this place will be in business very long and unless there is literally no one else available, I'd avoid this place at all costs!

I was looking for a new doctor in the area, and thought this one sounded good. Other doctors were scheduled 2 weeks out. I got into Dr. G the same day I called (clue). The first thing I received when walking into the office was a LIST of charges that I could face as a patient: $25 for changing an appointment, $50 for cancelling an appointment, $75 for bounced check. That she could charge for a 2nd appointment, if you get more than a wellness check on your visit, etc. All of the cards definitely stacked FOR the doctor's benefit. I went in to get an annual check up and pap smear. I paid $125 for my visit, $300+ for the blood tests. (They did not provide a receipt for the $300+ I paid). I was then told that I needed to make an appointment to come back and see the results of my blood test. I asked if I could get a copy of the lab results, "Not without making an appointment and paying another $125". (What happened to patient rights!?) I ended up calling the lab and getting a copy

This office is great! The staff makes you feel like you are part of the family. They know my name and offer me water. The wait is usually not very long. I was nervous to do my blood but they made me comfortable and gave me a lollipop. If you have to go to the doctor, this office makes it enjoyable. There I said it! I actually enjoyed going to the doctor!

Not very professional and poorly organized. She is a 'holistic' doctor and doesn't believe in medication, which is perfectly fine, but when an individual has family history of high cholesterol, stroke and heart attacks, medication should be given upon seeing the full blood panel. She loves to talk and seems to suffer from some sort of ADD because she has a tough time focusing on one subject. The last time I was there, I could hear her in the other room carrying a personal conversation for 1hr.

I was seeing a PA at my old office and didn’t realize how little she knew. My visits were 7 minutes max and I always left feeling like she didn’t address my real issue. So, I switched to Dr. G - a real doctor! She spent quality time getting to know me and trying to order the right tests to figure out my problem. Before, I would just google my problems and tell the PA what to do and she did. Dr. G is very smart and understands medicine. She is nice too.
