Rude, condescending and inconsiderate. Office not set up to handle seniors without computer access.

Made an appointment 6 weeks prior. Received a reminder card in the mail. I showed up early for my appointment and was told sorry, there was no appointment in the computer and the Dr. was too busy to see me. Then I was told they had upgraded their software and my appointment probably got lost in the transfer. The receptionist said if I wanted to drive to Tacoma they MAY be able to get me in, but other than that sorry. I will not be back and I will not recommend this office.

While he may know his ailments, his bedside manner is very off putting. Seemed completely disinterested in my history and what I was hoping for in terms of treatment approach. He treats the aliment, not the patient. Accurately and quickly diagnosed one condition but simply threw $300 prescriptions at my other concerns that do not address the root cause.
