This place is BEYOND awful. The staff and especially Dr. Matt Brown. I simply called to get medical information regarding my step daughter, and the office COULD NOT give me a simple yes or no as to if she (stepdaughter) even still had both her tubes in her ears as I called to get her surgery scheduled the week before and was advised she did not have any tubes per the staff.

Dr Brown and his allergy staff are awesome! However, the gal at the front desk is rude and grumpy. I just called to see what time my appointment was today because I forgot. After I said ok, thank you, she hung up. No "good bye". No "we will see you at 1". She just hung up. When you go in there to check in, she looks grumpy, acts grumpy, she IS grumpy and rude! Find someone else to represent your office. Not the first thing people want to see when they want in.
