I like Dr Smerling but a) he rarely is available for consultation, and b) his office help is awful. In trying to make an appointment or get clarification on a prescription issue, the phone just rings and rings. Their attitude towards customers is pretty awful. Due to these issues, I will be switching my GP later this year.

Can’t get in to see him. The only time we see him is for the annual physical that you set up a year in advance. We were pushed off on other doctors who have no relationship with us and my husband ended up very very sick.
