I would never go for long term care. They get their Pts to give premature opinions online don’t fall for that!! Very deceptive. If you need a long term dr. is your goal ? Don’t waste your time here then! They play hide and seek with your ins billing. Don’t expect a refund for money they owe you !!! They just changed business names and operate a fictitious uncredited drug testing lab ! I went immediately for a Hair follicle and urine at a reputable lab which disproves one they’re afraid to put a name on their results form or disclose their UDS that mysteriously has false positive of an outlandish substance never, ever had! Been going to GP &W / Summit Spine & Joint-over 2 years. Never had a bad uds. anywhere! until they allegedly need new pts they can soak w/ unnecessary procedures! Bleed your ins dry then can’t help you They won’t answer their certified letter nor, multiple faxes o phone calls but caught in lies. Very sketchy folks! Seriously crooked. Look for doctor made in USA
