My experience was terrible at this office. My appointment was at 4:45p, I got there at 4:21p and at 6:30p still hadn't been called. When I requested my insurance card they were refusing. Worst place

Please don't go to this doctor, he makes you do a bunch of text that you really don't need just for him to get money. And he doesn't know how to explain whats going on with you
