When another Dr sent for my records, he dropped me. I can't see the other Dr because of network issues, so now I have none. Very unethical, even cancelled my refill on my inhaler without telling me. Stay away from this one! Office girl is rude and when I questioned a bill, she told me to go to another Dr.
