I like Dr Tarbox. He’s very thorough. I haven’t seen him the last 2 times I came in. I have seen his PA. She’s thorough as well.

Worst Doctors office ever. Took 10 months to get in and 4 months to get my medication ordered and they STILL haven't scheduled my injections. I've now been off of Botox for a year and absolutely no empathy from staff. They won't even call you back...ever! How is this Dr still practicing?

I think he is very concise in his descriptions and asks questions. At one time I had difficulty getting to a person with their phone system but now it seems they have fixed whatever was going on with it. The clinic manager is very good and focuses on patient care.

I've had one visit w/Dr. The next was for tests, office called to cancel test until insurance approved the tests, two months and still no appointment. Left messages w/Frank and Andrea to return call and reschedule tests, they never returned calls. I called insurance myself to ask what the hold up...more
