Ridiculous response time to make appointment. Tried to make an urgent appt. w/Dr. Hurst on Oct 5th, 2016 who I saw once before and was told he had no earlier appts than Nov 14th. The person was rude and didn't like the fact that I told her the response time was ridiculous to start our conversation. She didn't even try to see if anything else was available. I suggest she lose her attitude. Very poor way to run a practice. If you're that big, hire more people to answer phones!

This was my first visit. Wait time: 2 hours 40 min. One man was so disgusted waiting that after 2 1/2 hours,he just left. The doctor never introduced himself to me, just asked the PA , what have we got here, as if I were not a human being. His diagnosis seemed to make sense, based on the X-Rays, but he didn't go into much detail, nor did he say much other than take Aleve twice a day and see me in 2 weeks. I had to do research online to really understand my condition; unsatisfactory!
