Horrible wait time. Everyone is scheduled the same time. The staff are a joke. They go against the doctors orders and do what they feel is right and ignore what the doctor says. Had to show up numerous times to talk to the doctor because they didn't do what he asked them. If I ever need surgery again I will not go their. It looks like a welfare clinic.

Waited over an hour from the time of appt. No organization by staff. Place was full of patients, making spots all at same time. Felt like I was at a free clinic or welfare office

You are part of a herd in the waiting room...every one has the same apt time. If you have a wheelchair or walker it is impossible to get into the bathroom- you have to get out of them to enter. The front door has no handicap button, the sidewalk in front of door is cracked and broken, he doesn't answer questions, leaves exam room leaving you not knowing if he's finished, he spends no more than 2 or 3 minutes with you. I will never put my self thru this again.

The receptionist for this office is very ignorant and very unprofessional. I didn't get past her to even make an appointment. If she would have not over talked me and let me explain my son's situation better maybe I would have seen the doctor. Now, I will never go there or recommend him to anyone because of her ignorant attitude!
