Been a patient of APA for 2+ years, met John one time and it was like he truly didn't care about my health issues but rather saw me as a pill hound. Was drug tested a lot during my time with APA which is understandable and necessary but always took my meds as prescribed. Wages did his UDA on me and never saw him after that but they changed the policy and now send it out and charge your insurance. Got a big bill in the mail and was treated so poorly by APA Billing staff I am never going back.

Dr. Wages, doesn't lesson to his patients, and likes to do the more expensive medical treatment. And will up and leave and have a nurse finish the office visit. When you have a drug Urien test done the windows or always full makes you wonder how safe the test are they do.

Dr. Wages clearly does not care about his patients, his staff or how he does business. He has a track record of only being available for the first appointment and then pushing the heavy lifting onto his clinical staff who are not always given the tools to help patients. he makes 0 exceptions and runs his clinic out of a 1960's textbook. He has a lack of empathy and logical reasoning. LITERALLY ANY DR IS BETTER!!!!
