Patient Comments (5)
I would leave a zero but there was no option. Building not handicapped accessable. Dr VERY nasty. Took my 90 year old mother and after waiting 3 hours the Dr asked her how she was doing. She replied "I waited so long I'm starting to decompose". You can expect to wait between 2 to 3 hours and if you have to leave because you can't wait any longer the rude staff will tell you you will still have pay for appointment. Just go and sit in waiting room, you will hear people complaining!!!

By far the absolute worst! I have had several appointments and each and every one have waited a minimum of 20-30 minutes past my appt time to be seen. I recently accidently forgot and missed my annual appointment. They refused to reschedule me when I called to apologize. The "phone clerk" said I would be billed for missing my appt. A few days later I received a bill of $50.00!!! He's kidding right?? I will send him an invoice for my time spent waiting at my hourly rate and see if he pays i

This Doctor should be reported. Was rude to my wife. Very demeaning. She will never return, plenty of other doctors.

Horrible, you have to wait hours and hours for what ? Nothing great but to see an uneducated staff and grumpy doctor, who doesn't care about his patients
The office is always running behind. They refuse to see you with any balance due,even if they haven't sent the bill. This dr sees more patients than he can in a day. He was referred by the insurance company but it seems as though he cares more about the number of patients he sees, noy helping them at all.
