Dr. Phillips is an excellent physician but unfortunately his office closed abruptly on 10/31/16. A message was left on my voice mail (inaudible) I could barely make out what was said other than Dr. Phillips was closing his practice and that I would get a letter In the mail...where are my records!!!! I tried calling back but only got a recording. HORRIBLE WAY OF DOING BUSINESS!!!!! This has really put a bad taste in my mouth!!!
