Over 2 years ago my wife missed an appointment due to her M.S. here.That morning she couldn't get out of bed. Of course I couldn't cancel with a 24 hr notice. So I went to the office to explain my wife's condition having 40 scars and active lesions. They stated come back after 1 year with a new referral. We did that and still got refused care. I tried again here recently and they said not at all because they moved patient appointments to fit her in on her original appointment. Rude staff !
