I called to try to speak to him, since I am out of town (9;30am). I finally received a call after 1pm, in which was told He had just left the office, and there was nothing they could do for me. If I needed anything to go to the Emergency Room. Out of state for the holidays and they blow you off. I guess so they can get the Money for the multiple office visits, just to give me the same prescription.
