I've called twice since to be told they were still reviewing my records. I've waited another 9 days...more

Dr. Gamache spent nearly an hour with me, which is unusual for a specialist, these days. She asked me lots of questions and in our discussion of my medical history & lab results, she treated me as an educated adult, instead of talking down to me, as if I had no awareness of my physical condition. ...more

This office is a joke,,,,Sent here on a referral and never got a return call...NOTHING! Staff seems rude and uninterested in their job. Total disgrace to the medical profession.
