The service was simply not performed in a manner that was appropriate, and then the questions I had about the charge were either not answered or were addressed by a very rude and curt doctor or office aid. This heaps insult upon injury (almost literally in this case). To say I will not be returning to this practice is a given. The procedure was unacceptable, and the service was even worse. It was an awful experience from beginning to end

HORRIBLE!!!!! I waited for over an hour after my scheduled appt, she rushed in and gave me MAYBE 5 minutes. I felt like she didn't address my concerns. I had more questions and I thought she said she be right back but in comes the nurse with my paperwork to send me on my way. The information on the paper was different from what we discussed and the nurse says well she is with another patient so if it is incorrect we will call you. In the meantime she told me my RX were already faxed but weren't.

First visit????horrible experience .Careless and irresponsible doctor I have ever met .
in Gainesville, VA |
first time there we had to wait outside the office for an hour past our appointment time. than an hour in the waiting room then 30 mins in the back for the dr to walk in and look for 2 seconds and scripted all sorts of creams and antibiotics. with out even explaining or asking how i felt about it. and there is so many other issues we have had with them. they never respond to you in a timely fashion they are impersonal and constantly messing up. this office should be shut down.

I was very excited to see this doctor as she was conveniently located and seemed to have an impressive background. I spent more time filling out my paperwork then the doctor spent with me. She questioned whether my melanoma diagnosis was accurate 10 years ago. I had to tell her that Dr. Peck, from the Melanoma Center, didn't usually misdiagnose these things. I wanted a thorough screening. She spent five minutes looking at my entire body ,froze a couple of spots on my arm....not a good appt!
The staff did not inform me that their office had changed locations. It took me 45 minutes to be seen and was very unorganized.
