I was a new patient with a respiratory infection. The doctor wrote my prescription wrong so ny pharmacy couldn't fill it. My pharmacy tried calling him and faxing him for 3 weeks to get the correct prescription until it expired. I called twice a week for 3 weeks and no one responded. The office staff is brainless and incompetent so i am not sure who is at fault. I still have the infection. I am calling my primary Dr for a new referral today.

Dr. Gatz seems like he isn't listening and sometimes doesn't answer questions but makes a joke out of it. Have to repeat questions over and over. The receptionist is one of the most rude receptionist ever dealt with. Making a return appt. is a nightmare and forget about getting through to get an answer to a question on the phone. After 5 attempts, and being told my call would be returned, I drove over and walked in to the office to get service.
