This review is about the PA-C Michael. I would strongly recommend his services, very understanding in listening to the patient.

In this day and age, it's disheartening to find a seemingly good doctor who is supported by a selfish, incompetent and lazy staff. I'm a Type 1 diabetic since 1963 and have seen Dr. Driss for the past 3 years. My insurance company - Medicare supplement - requires an annual pre-authorization for my prescriptions and, this year, Driss' staff has refused to comply, claiming they "don't have time!" 54 years, Type 1 diabetes, how much "TIME" do I have without my prescriptions?

I am a retired MD and have had Dr. Driss as my primary care physician for 20yrs. He is knowledgeable, concerned, careful, and effective. One example is that he discovered a dangerous prescription error by the Mayo Clinic. I trust him in the care for my wife. Some may find the "bed side manner" of other physicians better than that of Dr. Driss's, but that is not one of my major criteria in choosing caregivers. His nurse, Carolyn, is very good, responsive, and a pleasure to deal with.

Didn't get to see Driss, was hoping to saw his P.A nice person, ladies at front desk not real personalble, they continued to about personal stuff while asisting me, biggest complain I was charged 300.00 for new patient office visit and they didn't draw blood they sent me to labcor, I have never been charged that much for MD office visit not going back.

He is very knowledgeable, however, his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He takes little consideration into what the patient wants to say, he knows best. His PA-C Mike Sassman, however, is the one to see in this office. He is courteous, and takes time to hear all the symptoms.

Difficulty obtaining prescription refills, office staff defensive and communicate poorly, the PA doesn't seem knowledgeable - I had to request tests run by a previous provider for a similar concern. Overall, just a really poor healthcare experience.
