Do not waste your time or money going to this place! If i could choose the option of zero stars that would be more appropriate. The dr i saw, Dr. Desautels, was the most arrogant, egotistical i have ever met. I paid out of pocket $180 because they did not take my insurance for all of approx a 5 to 10 min visit with this dr, just to accomplish absolutely NOTHING! Not a legitimate examination, referral, treatment plan, advice, medication, NOTHING! He basically ripped me off is how i feel!

Dr. Desautels is extremely compassionate and caring. His staff is professional and courteous. I know that I am not their only patient, but they make me feel like I am. I would highly recommend Dr. Desautels to anyone.
