I would never recommend this office to anyone! Their scheduling / messaging system is a nightmare. If you are sick, forget it, they won't call you or your PCP back. I ended up in the hospital for a week once because they could not see me in a timely fashion even though I begged in person. On another occasion I was ignored by the scheduling staff and my PCP's office even called 6 times with no call back. Totally unprofessional and uncaring. I lost my 24 yr. old daughter to Lupus and I have it too

If I could rate a 0 star I would. Staff to make appt not calling back after 3 weeks of waiting and I have left multiple messages. In pain moving on to find another doctor as if this hard to even get appt I can't imagine the treatment I would even get.
Awfull just meeting me and acusing me of goig to her so i could get disability whe only my pain was discuss at this time. Doesnt explaing anything. Plain rude.
