Terrible front office staff! Rude and inconsiderate. BJ Claiborne is a shiftless leader and office manager. Apparently she allows her staff to mistreat people.

Best doctor ever! If you need an excellent medical office this facility is by far the best you will ever find. I feel truly blessed and privileged for being his patient. I have been his patient for over five years and he has always taken great care of me and has solved all of my illnesses and some which requires life long maintenance are well managed and in good hands with this doctor. In fact, I owe all of my good health to Doctor R. Claiborne and his staff. His team starting with the front desk to the technician and medical assistants are all an outstanding team of medical professionals who care and do excellent work. Take it from my personal experience, you are in excellent hands with this medical group.

Dr. Ronnie Claiborne is the most compassionate doctor we have ever had. He listens to his patients & quickly schedules tests for their ailments. In 2011, he saved my husband's life by recognizing from his symptoms what course of action needed to be taken (something that the emergency room & hospital missed)! He is extremely smart & we have complete confidence in him! Plus he has a wonderful staff!

Dr. Claiborne cares about money 1st & patients 2nd. He'd often run unnecessary tests just to be able to be able to Bill my insurance. I needed to see a specialist & he & his office gave me the run around for an entire year about sending a referral.I finally got one from another doctor. The issue turned out to be cancer. My surgeon said he suggested I contact a malpractice lawyer. Absolutely terrible.
