Never saw the doctor for a follow up due to wait time ( over 35 minutes). Appt was just to get MRI results so I asked the receptionist to just have the doctor call me but she said "he must seeyou" . Desk staff very dry and non apologetic; left because I couldn't wait any longer, will try to schedule in another office

I specifically made an appointment for 9am because I had to be home by 10:30am. I assumed that 90 minutes was enough time for an initial discussion with the doctor. I was there on time and signed in as a newpatient. After 45 minutes I checked the sign-in sheet and I still wasn't next. No one spoke to me; no one asked for my referral script; no one asked for my paperwork, which I filed out prior to my arrival. Frankly, there are too many good practitioners out there for me to waste so much time in a waiting room. I see many doctors and all of them see me within 15 minutes of my appointment time, most even sooner. I won't reschedule.

The doctor was great! He listen to me, and didn't rush me, I liked that he took his time to tell me what I had, and what was necessary, very nice doctor, didn't rush to talk to me... The waiting timewas a little 2 much, I was frustrated, but it's understandable. At least I left with a good "diagnosis" or "treatment" ... The staff.. Mmm they need to be a little more happier, at least a smile when ppl walk in, to make us feel welcome.

It was my first visit. The staff was very friendly a little unorginized, maybe because it was 9am and they were getting situated for the day. The doctor was awesome, he actually listened and did not rush. He explained everything tome, options, pros and cons, and I feel that I'm in good hands. The staff was friendly and office was clean.

I had to wait a little longer than I would like, but I quickly realized that it was because the Dr. was taking the time to actually help his patients and not just speed through to get to the next person.He explained things in an easy to understand manner and I appreciated his attitude and the visit overall.
