Unfortunately this was a complete waste of time. We arrived 15 minutes early and had already completed check in paperwork via ZocDoc. The office was outdated, unfurnished (other than some old chairs in the lobby) and, unwelcoming. After findingour forms and verifying our insurance, we were placed in a room. Other patients' doors were left open as babies screamed the entire time. The doctor or someone dressed in nicer attire entered the room 45-50 minutes later to ask what we were in for, She was very nice (again, not sure who she was because she never introduced herself). We waited another 15 minutes. After being there a total of one hour and 30 minutes, we left. Absolutely ridiculous.

I went to this clinic the walls were dirty. Her equipment didn't work. I made an appointment at one location and they posted the appointment at the gessner location. She did not send me the blood results nor did she call.I had to call her and she forgot to send my daughter's medicine into the Pharmacy after I gave them the number and called 3 times. The MA said she usually calls them in herself and she forgot 3 times. I still have not recieved the prescription for my daughter because she can't remember to do her job. She has plastic lawn chairs in her waiting area and in the rooms. Tacky, dirty, forgetful not up to standards of a good Physician. That's my opinion. I would not even give her 1 star

This has not been the first time I've had issues with this dr. office. The first time during my son's newborn visit, the nurse stuck my son multiple times (more than 5) because she could not take his blood, second timewe visited, I had made an appointment a week prior for vaccinations, and office did not have required shot. This past time, I called an hour in advance to confirm my appointment and once I got there office was closed (this took place at 11:45am). Twenty minutes later after my scheduled appointment, I received a phone call from office asking if we could reschedule. I'm usually not one to be picky, but this office has been unprofessional on many different occasions. Will be finding new pediatrician. The dr. is pleasant, but staff is not so organized and professional

Honestly, ZocDoc did not disclose that this doctor specialized in child pediatrics and only worked out of this office a day or two a week. The main doctor works the other days. I explicitly requested a doctor who could assess, notnecessarily diagnose, ADD / ADHD. The doctor chatted with me for 15 minute or so but did not add any true value for an adult seeking what I was. She believed I did not have ADHD because I wasnt throwing things or bouncing all over the place. I reasoned with myself that it may be due to becoming an adult, but who knows. Overall, not a satisfactory visit and will try elsewhere.

Yeah I made an appointment online so it would be a quick visit, and ended up waiting a total of 4 hours. The workers literally stay in the back, talk and waste time. They were incredibly unprofessional. Then once I wascalled in for my checkup I waited in the room for like 2 more hours. I think they forgot I was even in the room. There were babies running all around dangerous areas with needles and they were a MAJOR hazard. Then they overcharged me, thinking I was naive. Way too much caos. I personally will never go there again

The waiting room is tiny and with so many patients it was uncomfortable. There were chairs stacked up for patients but no where to put the seat. The wait time was over an hour to see the doctor. The doctor isloud and obtuse. She would not send prescriptions to the well known pharmacies, only the pharmacy behind her office which is independent. I do not recommend.

Ignore all the good reviews. They have absolutely bad service here. Everything is s l o w. And they don't give you any status if your time is coming up. The doctor really was rushing to give her diagnosis. Very poor. Wouldn't send my worse enemy here.

The overall visit was good but we informed the office that my daughter was allergic to Penicillin and when we arrived at the pharmacy, the doctor had called in a prescription for Penicillin. This is very concerning as even a smalldose of Penicillin could be lethal to my daughter. They corrected the prescription as soon as I called but it is still very concerning.
