He and his staff NEVER get back to you. He prescribed me something that was not formulary at all and despite several messages over a few weeks of trying to have him change the drug to something else, he never did. I finally was so desperate that I ended up paying $850 out of pocket to fill the medication that wasn't covered by my insurance because I couldn't go any longer without any medication. Also, it took forever to get them to charge my insurance, also took several phone calls.
