    I would never EVER come here. Office staff is horrible and rude. My mother called because she believes she has Colitis again she just had it 3 months ago.. she so called to talk to the doctor. When she told the nurse she looked up her history and saw where she had it 3 months ago and said oh yes that is VERY serious you need to have a follow up appointment and my mom was like no this is new it started again. My mom just had surgery so she said I just had surgery is there anyway to expedite and
