Don’t waste your time . They expect you to make sure you give plenty of notice if you need to reschedule but when I book my appointment 8 months out and get a call 2 days prior and took a half a day off I hear giggling on the phone like it’s funny! And then I ask about my topamax medication and I’m told if I don’t come in right away I can’t get refills! First of all my appointment was booked for 8 months why didn’t you call me sooner to reschedule ? I have planned meetings all week it’s not alwa

the absolute worst experience i have ever had with any DR so uncaring and unprofessional even down to the rude staff truly unbelievable, she just shunned me off didnt listen to a word a i said and generalized everything and literally told me i dont know whats wrong with you come back in a month set up no action plan to help me get better nor did she point me in any direction to do so, basically figure it out on your own good luck. She would receive negative stars if possible

She solved my issue quickly, helpful staff, fast appointment. She knows her stuff. Did not just whisk me in and out like most doctors. I will be forever grateful for her.
