Staff is inefficient. You never see anyone but the physicians assistant, but still pay specialist prices. Unable to get call backs for appointments. Won’t do diagnosis or do any tests without numerous visits. Look elsewhere if you are in pain and need help.

It's very strange because you send about 80% of the visit with the physicians assistant, and then he goes and gets Dr. Tesser who only stays for a little bit. There is a lot of waiting involved too. But Dr. Tesser does seem very knowledgeable and he's pretty nice.
