Dr Ficks was very knowledgable and spent a lot of time explaining things to me. I never felt rushed and was very confident in her recommendations and treatment plan. She is amazing!

She is too busy and too rushed. Never calls back, though rushed staff person will call back. Can't schedule follow up appointment. So I cannot get my concerns voiced or addressed.

She sets you up for a lab test and says I want to see you in a week. Her staff says okay, you?re on the waiting list to see her, which is in three months What then? Never a follow up, just another digit to her day. Thanks for nothing.
