    Absolutely horrible Dr's office. I would not have bothered to write this review if i was not a health care professional and so incredibly appalled by the way this practice handles itself. There is ALWAYS a billing error and my insurance in consistently over charged. There is ALWAYS over an hour-long wait after your appointment time. The office is filthy, archaic, and some rooms look like they're being used as a storage room for the owner's personal belongings. Do yourself a favor and avoid.Gross
