Takes forever to actually be seen by a doctor. The staff is extremely rude and unprofessional. The only on that is nice, and does act professional would be Dr. Avery himself, but you hardly ever actually get to see him anymore.

My whole family use to go here, Unfortunately over the years your office & your staff has become awful!!!! Waiting time is crazy & even when get into a room, it still takes another hour to get seen. The nurses will go out of your room, then you will over hear them talking about you to the others gossiping, judging, it's extremely unprofessional (YOU GUYS HAVE THIN WALLS, YOUR PATIENT'S CAN HERE YOU). Things have only gotten worse, we have all now switched doctors.

Dr Avery when with you is very good; however office operations is horrid. Pharmacy called in refill to office last week; and I called office this morning to check status. "Oh we ignore pharmacy refill request" was what they explained. Discontinuing my medicine has risks of stroke and seizure. They didn't call, text, email, or use portal to notify me. Went to office for 3:30 appointment taken to room within 10 minutes ... waited in room overy hour before being seen.
