It used to be a 4-hour waiting time and it was always filled with people in the lobby, so I’m glad that’s changed. Wish it was price-friendly for those who work minimum wage.

Best doctor I could have. Patient, courteous, polite, loving and caring (just to name a few). Words can't express how amazing this doctor is and his staff. Easy to get a same day appointment, which keeps me away from the emergency room for non-emergent conditions. I extremely recommend my doctor to everyone. Needless to say, services provided in the office make it very convenient for me. I've had X-rays, labs, ultrasound, 2 D echo, EKG all in the office. I'm sure there are more services offered.

If this office wasn't one of tge only placesto accept my insurance, I would not come here. Three hour wait to be seen...WITH AN APPOINTMENT? Do you have a prescription that needs prior approval by your insurance? FUH-GET ABOUT IT! They say I Really Need medicine but drag their feet getting the paperwork to my pharmacy. My advise? If you have a choice, don't choose here.

I will assume that re starting a doctor's office at a different location is difficult and when the doctor took over this office I was not entirely happy with his services. After some time now (not sure how long) I will change my opinion of his services and say that I am happy with his services. He devotes enough time to take care of my problems and always helpful.

The only reason i put one star was because theres no other way to leave a review. If you love yourself or the person you are taking to get treated with him please find someone else. My grandmother went with him and due to his lack of knowledge my grandmother had now passed away. He never knew what was wrong, never listened to our concerns and did as he pleased. He prescribed medications and exams that weren't relevant. He wouldnt even answer the hospital calls while my grandma was taken to ICU.

Very little time with the MD. Mostly managed by NP. Bases diagnosis & treatment on outdated previous labs, not currently ones. Med refills are impossible without appointment.
