Do not use this office. You will never get a return call or a referral. Did not see Dr. Sentef the office staff is horrible. I have been waiting for over a month for a return call.

Didn't actually see the Dr. Saw Bruce who I think is a Nurse practitioner. And a nurse Amanda. They drew some labs. I called a couple days later and they didn't have results and were very rude. I also had some new symptoms I had questions about that no returned my call on. So then they called on...more

Dr. Sentef is good, but not good enough to justify dealing with his awful, slow, unprofessional staff. If you sign on as a patient, you're committing yourself to a full time job following up with them to make them do their jobs. Not worth it
