Patient Comments (15)

DO NOT RECOMMEND! I thought I could work through the staff being rude but what I just experienced was absolutely terrible! I went in for an annual several weeks ago and thought as a new patient I could speak to the doctor openly about any and everything going on with my body. The doctor literally...more

I make every effort to solve my patient's complaints personally. I gave you this very courtesy - a personal call to discuss your concerns. I sensed your anger at having to pay for my professional expertise, but I could not figure out how to make you happy other than give you back the 30. Most have a "0" copay for a Well Visit. Most require a copay for a problem. If we write a prescription for the problem we charge the copay. Sorry you did not understand your insurance requirements.

This office is a joke. I wish I had read the reviews before choosing her. Over 1.5 hour wait for my "appointment". What good is an appointment if they run this far over schedule? I can understand patients are late and a visit could take longer than expected, however, when I asked if this was...more

We apologize that your experience was less than satisfactory. At certain times of the day, the wait can reach up to 1.5 hours. We find that with the change in healthcare coverage, patients are trying to havie their problems addressed during their Well Visit to reduce the cost of having to return. I make an effort to address at least one of the problems which often puts me behind. Each patient taking an extra 5 minutes creates a delay very quickly. Thank you for taking your time to visit us.

Second appt was rushed and prescriptions weren't called in and numerous voicemails were left by me at the office....Frustrating and would not recommend...more

I apologize that your interaction with my staff was less than cordial. We have a Patient Portal that we invite each patient to utilize and I see those requests directly which might prevent missing prescriptions and numerous voicemails. HIPAA prevents us from leaving messages about your health on phone numbers not familiar to us. We encourage patients to utilize this feature and assist them in registering.

She refers me to all the doctors i need. She is such an inspiration as a woman. She takes care of all my medical...more
