1) The worst and incompetent Staff I have ever experienced. The Doctor and his Medical Assistant will not return calls even for urgent kidney issues. His Office is in disarray. 2) The Medical Assistant does not follow-up on any important items that was confirmed during the visit. 3) The Medical Assistant did not fax in a blood work order to Quest as needed by the Doctor and I had to have my Primary fax in an order.
