Patient beware. This practice does not care about the well being of their patients. The doctor would not prescribe my blood sugar controlling medication due to me missing my last appointment. I knew I needed to go as it had been a few months so I made an appointment for end of November as I was going to be out of town for the first 2 weeks of November. He would not fill my meds and now I am without until I find a new doctor. This doctor does not care about patients, just money!!

Very unhappy all the way around. Wouldnt refill my meds without seeing him every 3 months(Id been on the same med for 4 years)...claims filed wrong with insurance company, they charged me double on two of my test and in no way would they help. I just got the run around. Then, 2x I had to wait 45 min to an hr to see him.
