Have tried to make an appointment for months, requiring my authorization to be extended, but can't because the lady is never at her desk.

Awful! This is the worst office I have ever visited. The staff is extremely rude and Dr. Prentice is careless. After waiting over an hour to see the doctor we got nothing resolved. What a waste of time! Do yourself a favor, find another neurologist.
