I broke my foot @ work. I was sent to this m.d. I don't care if all my bills are being paid by Workers Comp. I'd rather pay out of pocket than go back to this m.d. In a nutshell. He seems incompetent. I truly believe the only ones giving more than 1 star are the ones getting free pain pills. This is obviously a W.C. mill. I didn't ask for pain pills, but the front office girl tried to force me to take a bottle. I refused. 1 week later, I received pain cream in the mail. I NEVER ASKED FOR it.

My first visit, I walk up to the reception counter to witness pure chaos. Phones were ringing off the hook and files were scattered everywhere! No one greeted me until I stood there for a few moments and stared at them. It took 2 hours of waiting before I saw the doctor. 7 days after my appointment, they lost my file and never submitted it for approval. This place should be OUT OF BUSINESS!! Terrible customer service and awful patient care! Do not go to this place if you have a choice!
