This is a walk-in clinic. It does not take appointments. People in the waiting room experience waits of up to 2 hours. There is 2 hour parking out front; however, you will find that is not long enough for your visit.

The doctor is very nice and so respectful. The 2 of the stuff are so respectful too. But the one that sits in the front desk is so mean. She asks you to come on time not before or after theappointment time . But when you come on time, she never takes you on time. She makes you wait there for 2 hours. People who comes after you will go to see the doctor before you. Thats so mean. The way she talks is kind of mean too. First day I came at 1:30 pm and a lot of patiens went before me. I cancsay I. Was the last patiend called there around 4:00 pm . The second time I knew that I have to wait there a lot, thats why i went there a little bit earlier than my appoient, but she said wait until you appoinement time. She called other patients that came after me. That was so rude. I wait there for 2 more hours. I recommend this doctor for all of you because he is good, but be ready to deal with the front desk lady.

The wait was almost 2 hours. He also said he would call in prescription and did not. I had to call his office and wait another 10 min for it to be sent over after calling twice to let them know pharmacy did not have it. Horrible experience!

The computer system that they use to chart the patients information looks to be about 20 years old aND neither of the tworld technicians trying to input my chart information could use it well enough to input my data . Mywife's enunciation is clear enough to be understood by today's most primitive voice recognition and talk to text systems, with her volume being loud enough to be heard as a public speaker in front of a group of 200 people without a microphone.The doctor was wheezing loudly. I hope this practice isn't around much longer for the sake of helping people avoid it.
