Worst clinic I’ve ever been to. Dr. Nwankwo at the Smyrna location made a mistake when submitting my documents for insurance, and I ended up being billed $300 (which I ended up paying!) for something that should’ve been free (reported as diagnostic instead of preventative). I called their office at least 10 times over the course of two months. Every time they came up with a new excuse. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS CALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY AND TELL THEM TO CHANGE THE ONE THING ON THE CLAIM REPORT!

Went in for a test. They made me wait for 2.5 hours although I had an appointment. Then I went back a week later when they were supposed to give me my results, and waited for an hour, just so they tell me the results are not ready yet. Went in for a third time, and they made me wait again and measured my blood pressure and other things, although I was there only to pick up my results, and finally gave me my results. A month later I realized they have charged me for three office visits!!!!!!!!!!

Extremely nice doctor who spends time with her patients. This is the first female doctor I've seen (I'm male), and I was a little reluctant at first. Having seen her several times now, I could not be more pleased.

Incompetent staff. A total mess. Don't go here. It's a farce. The medical assistant does all the work and they are clueless.
