Patient care is not important with this office. The staff is SO UNPROFESSIONAL! It takes over a month to receive lab results. When you call to receive the results, it could take a week for a call back. I've been given the wrong results and several days later received a call and or letter with different results. Over the phone you can hear the staff laughing and joking in the background and in the office you can hear them saying mean things about patients and other workers.

I'm sure that Dr. Kenyatta is an incredible doctor but was never able to meet with her as the office receptionist was extremely rude. As a new patient, I realized that I didn't want this type of interaction before seeing my healthcare provider so I decided to find someone else with a friendly office staff.

Dr. Shamlin (both Kenyatta and Tasha) are absolutely wonderful! My daughter has seen them both and they have taken EXCELLENT CARE of her. They answer all of my questions efficiently and effectively and I never leave unsatisfied.

I LOVE Dr. Shamlin as my doctor. She takes the time to listen to you about your concerns. Then staff is friendly enough; however, trying to talk to them over the phone is almost impossible! It takes me forever to get a prescription renewed. At the moment it is almost 2 weeks trying to get a medicine approved for me, which all started over trying to get the fax to her for approval. The staff could be a bit more punctual in their efforts to get the prescription ready.

I would recommend the doctor but not the office. They have made several mistakes from giving me someone else's medical record in my lab report to giving me conflicting information on referrals and medications. I don't know that I'll be returning to her because I can't trust the office.
