This office is horribly managed. I had my appointment rescheduled because they lost a provider 2 months ago? They should have planned that. I had to leave a message and it took 4 days to have them call me back, and then they said they’d have to call me back- never did. Went to my appointment and was told they were 1and a half hrs behind- they didn’t have the curtesy to call? Dropped this office like a bad habit
