No way. Staff is rude. Routine prescriptions are often difficult to fill. If you're 10 minutes late, they won't see you. Not surprising that the waiting room is typically empty. I won't be back.

Stay away if you’re looking looking for a doctor who cares. Worst doctor I’ve ever been to. Horrible bedside manners. She’s all about the $$. I should have read the reviews before I booked the appointment. I hope to find a pleasant family physician, I will read reviews next time.
