Made appt.with Dr.Chenna over a mo.in advance for my 84yr.old mother.Appt. was at 2:40and planned to come 20min.early to register as a new patient.Tried to key exact location on their car GPS. GPS wouldn't recognize address.Called office # over 6times &tried every option to get thru for directions.Every time either got someone that could not give directions, a msg.to leave a call back #, etc.Left house @ 1:15, finally arrived at 3:08.They wouldn't take her. Had to take her back home.She cried.

Great environment and friendly staff. Difficult to obtain prescriptions when needed/sick. Did not feel adequate care given each time I left.
