    Absolutely terrible. On my first visit, Dr. P tried to get me on Adderall even after I told him I'm a recovering addict. The staff has a printout of all the patients Dr. P will be seeing that day and their prescriptions, which is in plain view of anyone who walks up to the counter. They give a piece of paper to take to Dr. P which says what Rx he'll be writing. He sees you for maybe 60 seconds (sometimes less) and then bills for $250. I feel bad for my employer, who sponsors my health insurance.

    Why Does Experience Matter?
