Incredibly arrogant disregard for patients. I'm a former patient of this group. I've made two calls (no way to talk to a live person, you can only leave a message), left two messages and sent an email, requesting an appointment. No response; it's been a week. Apparently patients are like cattle to be used as desired, otherwise to be ignored.

My experience with Dr. Rickards and her staff was amazing. They were on top of everything in a friendly professional manner. I was in so much pain with a severely broken wrist that required surgery and they made me feel that I was top priority. According to those I chatted with in the waiting room, they too praised Dr. Rickards. The office was very clean and comfortable. I had 4 visits to her office and was very pleased and grateful every visit.

Rudest staff ever! Arrogane at its finest. Waited almost and hour from my appointment time. Mind i tell you i called to schedule an appointment 10 plus times and no one was willing to schedule it for me nor tell me what Ineeded in order to get an appointment made. I always got sent to her personal assistants recording machine and never got a call back. Saw the doc for 2 minutes and the snobbish, thinks she knows it all assistant for a painful two more minutes. Go to TJ 'll get better treatment.
