Dr. Russell Briggs gets 5-stars! The office however I would not rate well. At the front desk there is a sign saying "If you have NOT been called back in 20 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, please inform the front desk." In two of the three visits I've made to the office I waited well over 40 minutes to be roomed.
