My big issue,was with the staff who worked in the back.After waiting 15 minutes to have someone come in for my EKG, I I found three young women chatting away Only after my inquiry,did someone come in to do the EKG.When the technician applied all the leads,she pulled out her cell phone,and only when the EKG didn't start,did she realize she didn't connect everything.After the study was completed she didn't remove the leads;she stood at the foot of the table and YANKED them off. I'm done.No apology

My experience in the office has not been a pleasant one . My appt was 9:15. They called me into the room at 10:00 and waited another 20 mins for the doctor. This waiting time in the office is not only dr melis but most of the doctors there .next issue with that office is that the doctors have nurse call you with blood results regardless the results .who do you ask if you have a question The Nurse? asked 4 xs for dr to call me no call back but Not only Melis most dr s in office do same
