Very Bad. Staff has no respect for time and wasted more than hour of my time. I was on time for the first appointment of the day but the staff decided to take someone else ahead of me. Cancelled appointment and left after waiting for 40 minutes. Wasted my morning because of BAD staff of Dr. Shaw

Dr. Shaw was great! I got some of the care that I need and am very pleased so far; however, the staff is rude, obnoxious, and lacks empathy. I am stuck because of insurance, but if it were up to me, I would not return.
