I would not recommend this provider to anyone. She did not listen to my health concern. Her bed side manner was not for patient care.

I have used her and her associates for years and all of a sudden she had a PA names James Balch, PA that decided he didn't want to see me. I then needed a refill on the only prescription I take and found out they no longer want me as a client. ?? Why? I am not a high maintenance client and only need the "Yearly" checkup. But it seemed like everytime I turned around they required me to go in for another checkup. Ask me a few questions and charge me $100+. I have only RLS and take a med for it.

This last visit was disturbing as the doctor thought I was taking a medication I was not, like she was looking at someone else's chart and this after she showed up almost 1 1/2 hour late to my appt. she said due to patients asking questions and I had a 9:15 in the MORNING appt.?? Don't they allow time for patients to ask questions? We understand emergencies come up and we also know some doctors can become arrogant and selfish and think little about their patients time in comparison to theirs.

Unreasonable wait times every time I visited, even after scheduling an appointment. Not worth waiting more than an hour every time. This doctor does not appreciate patient's time.
