I found the Dr. to be excellent. She seems to know her stuff. The staff, while there is okay, but to get follow-up attention, i.e., prescriptions sent after insurance authorization horrible. Same lapse of professionalism as returning calls left with the answering service. So, dr. good, staff while in house at good, office terrible. Now I need to wait over 2 weeks to get the MRI I need because of how booked up they are and they still don't have the prescription, even though I was told that the fax was sent over as we spoke. No follow through.
