My experience at this office was HORRIBLE! Dr. Wrightson was ok, but you never see him it's always the PA. The staff is very disrespectful to patients. They threaten to hold your prescriptions from you if you owe them money. Then they will turn on you and tell the Dr. that you did things or said things that ARE NOT true! Then the DR. will release you from his care without weaning you off your meds. So your left to go through withdrawals without real help. Then they NEVER send records to new Dr

No privacy. Coercive behaviors required to obtain care. Contract unclear. Instructions never provided in writing. Op convents are signed without physician interaction. I would under no circumstances recommend this poorly run practice. Additionally one never sees the actual physician. If a call is made with questions reactions are punitive. The practice is dangerous and unsafe

WATCH OUT, the mail order prescription plan they tried to force on me would have cost six times what the local pharmacy charged. Pity the poor people who were paying cash. I was told by the PA that they got a split of what was collected from the pharmacy service. Opiate problem nationwide, wonder why, DEA should get a appointment here. Office was filthy.

In the last 6 months I've had an average of 4 minutes a visit with the Dr or PA. They come in long enough to write a prescription and do what's needed on the computer and they're gone. Billing sucks. My first bill came 4 months after my first appointment which showed the Dr I was seeing was a out of network Dr for my insurance. Sending me for testing that is never brought up again is a waste and of course doing testing on me that they assure me is covered by insurance that's Not is a real treat
