The staff nurse was rude and inconsiderate. Was rescheduled for an earlier time but waited for more than and hour to be taken to an exam room and then waited an additional 15-20 mins for the dr

The office never does what it suppose to, they do not return calls they are rude and would rather sit and talk about their nails then help anyone. I have been trying to get things handled for a good bit of time with no help from them. if you choose this office good luck
