Very rude and they demanded money from me when I was told prior that there was no charge that I would have to pay for. They require a UA with every visit as well.

Great Dr. Listened, understood what I was trying to say and helped with my condition instead of adding more diagnoses and meds. I instantly felt comfortable.

The wait was a little longer than usual but that is probably no fault of his, everything is always a little messy after a holiday. But he was a great doctor and well worth the wait. Very understanding and informative, usedvisuals and spectrums to help explain medical terms. Overall a great visit with a great doctor.
