What People Say About Dr. Laura Esswein, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Esswein was very rude to my son and I at our appointment. She mistakenly believed that we were half an hour late and scolded my son and I. The interaction was shocking and upsetting. I was, in fact, on time for the appointment. Her staff had us sitting in the waiting room for half an hour. She did apologize but the way that she spoke to me when she believed that I was late was unprofessional and totally unacceptable under any circumstance.

Staff are very courteous and return calls quickly. I was able to get a 30 day refill at a local pharmacy within hours and they also electronically submitted the 90 day refill for mail order. Dr. Esswein treats my entire family for allergies. Great with kids and adults. Appointments are kept on time.
