The doctor himself is fine, but his office is unhelpful and doesn't seem to answer the phone all the time. I also had a serious issue with a zero refill request for an ongoing maintenance medication, which they denied without notifying me. But as they said brightly on the phone, "currently he's the only doctor in town."
