Always have to see nurse practitioner rather than the doctor. Transitioning to this doctor and needed refills on cholesterol and blood pressure medicine. Even though I was completely out of these medications I was advised by male nurse that it may 2 or 3 days to get the refills due to the holidays. I was going out of town in 2 days and was advised that I may need to go to urgent care, he thinks they prescribe medicine. Dr. needs to monitor staff's lack of compassion towards patients.

He did not take my symptoms serious, so 3 months later i was in the hospital havi g brain surgery due to a large brain tumor. Because of his no care i was disabked more than i would have been if he took his job seriously 3 months before. He is the type of doctor who only cares about the money he can make. The ER Doc said he was an idiot for not sending me straight to him in the ER.
