Horrible. Staff chats with each other not regarding medical - gossiping. Stood at window for 3 minutes before staff decided to stop talking and acknowledge patient was waiting for assistance. Inferior communication. Had blood work done, received results from lab which were abnormal - never received communication from doctor to let me know why, and what needs to be done. Called 8 times - no return call. Complete waste of time. I am requesting change of doctor completely
