The doctor is great but his office staff is the absolute worst! My son had an urgent issue and no appointments until September. I asked if they have any other doctors they can refer to that may have earlier appointments. They had no idea and told us to go to the ER...who in their right mind would go to an ER in the middle of a pandemic?!
