Only avail. 2 days/wk & appt. lasts 1-3 hours!! Nurse checks vitals, Dr listens to heart & I pee in cup, So mostly that time is in the crowded waitroom. After being seen, I wait for drug test results b4 receiving my RX. At my 1st appt, a saliva sample was taken "to make sure Im not doing anything Im not supposed to". Umm.. Im a 28yo 1st time mom. I dont drink/smoke but legally could if I so choose. Also not on drugs but still bothered by being treated as a criminal each month. This is why left!

This is the most unprofessional Dr office I have ever been to. The doctor tried giving me antidepressants for sleep and when I told him I didn't want anti depressant he said we were pretty much out of options lol do not go to this quack!

This guy is in it for the money. His office is really dirty and he takes any chance to bill you. Avoid at all costs. The receptionist is also really bad...I tried to get something re-billed with a correct code and they just ignored me for months until I just had to pay it to avoid going to collections.

I just moved to Clawson from Florida- picked Dr. Zelch as my family doctor. I gave the office all the info on my prescriptions- Dr. said he would order them- I called 3 times and talked to the office staff because they had them screwed up- asked them 2 x to call me back and let me know when it was straightened out. They never did- after 15 days I switched doctors- The staff has no clue-
