Patient Comments (6)
Walled Lake, MI |
I found the office staff to be rude, I had made an appt in Aug. for end of Oct. then was called because they had to cancel due to some conflict so they give me an appt. in Oct. that does not work for me and then want me to take a Dec. appt. which is the day after Christmas which we all know will get cancelled due to holiday so instead of working with me finding something in Oct mid or Nov. Office manager is rude and does not work with people at all disgusted at how she acted very rude person
She listens to what you have to say. She doesn't push prescription after prescription. She doctors what ails you. She is proactive. Kind. Considerate. Compassionate.

I feel like she listens to me and I always leave the office with a solution or plan. E-mails are always responded to quickly and medication refills are also easily requested online and I don't wait long for those either. She's easy to talk to, and doesn't make me feel rushed or unimportant .
