The worst experience of going to a doctor's office in my life. The office was dirty. The office manager as well the staff was horrible. As a African American male, I felt like I was in the twilight zone. They sent me fake appointments in the mail that stated I was going to be billed 250 for not showing but then apologized. I had a workmen's comp case. They never sent me a release letter for me to go back to work that caused my benefits to stop.... Just horrible!!!!!!!! Dont go there!!!!!!!!!
