Overall, my experience has been a wonderful one. They offer a variety of different services and they stay up to date with current technology available. Jaime Mendoza the nurse practitioner is phenomenal. She genuinely listens, helps you make the right decisions about medications (yes they DO involve you in that part as well), and has plenty of other cognitive practices outside of medication therapy to offer. I’ve had a few hiccups with front desk personnel not being sensitive to the nature of their business; however, humans are...well...human. Bad days happen to us all.

Was Terminated for not being able to produce a urine sample for drug test. I stayed at the office for approximately 50 minutes drinking water and trying several times to go.. after these attempts I spoke with one of the nurses and told them I had another very important appointment with my Credit Union that I could not miss. She informed me that it would count as a refusal . I have never had any prior strikes and I have been going there for over four months.. Very unfair as I really need the help.

Really like & trust Dr Nigam but his office has a huge issue with their phones — there is no way to call them and ever get an actual live human being on the phone!! And to leave multiple messages over the course of several days and never get a call back absolutely should NOT BE when you are a patient desperately trying to get ahold of your dr...
