I will never visit here again. They made me come back multiple times to have a physical and blood work done. Doctors kept telling me I wasn't getting charged only to find out later I was. The wellness exam suppose tohad been covered for free however they manage to separate the wellness exam and blood work so they could get more money out of me instead of doing everything in one visit. Definitely wouldn't recommend going here because they use shady sales tactics to get more money out of you and your insurance.

This office has great providers but is managed poorly. I had several scheduling problems with the office and found out they had been overcharging me. I had to have the finance person in the office talk with my insurance company sohe could explain to her how insurance works. The experience was frustrating and time consuming so I left for another doctor's office.

Not very happy. Went to get annual exam. Doctor made me to come twice and charged me for a visit, even though my annual is 100% covered. One of my vitamin's turned out to be very low and no one evencalled to tell me that, I had to find out that from the Lab Corp website. Will not suggest to go to that doctor. They make appointments at 9 am and doctor come to the office at 9.30 am in the morning.

Walked away without learning anything. Completely impersonal. I was the only one in the office, but the doctor (an older lady) didn't seem to be bothered with me at all. WASTE OF MONEY!

Overall the staff is pretty nice. The procedures could use some tightening up. I was given three quotes for how much my visit was going to be. There are specific tests that were supposed to be done at my last visitthat didn't occur because the equipment wasn't functioning properly. There was never any attempt to have the test done once the equipment was repaired (if it was repaired). Yet I am paying FULL PRICE as though I'm getting a FULL SERVICE. I can't......

The visit was nice, the initial wait was much longer than I had anticipated. My treatment has just begun, so I will follow up with accuracy. So far the doctor and her staff's personality match mine. I like them.

It was an awful experience. Never never return to this office eve again. The receptionist was rude. I checked in at 1:30, no one would ask us to fill any forms until I asked 30 minutes later, her respond was yesI knew you were waiting, I just have a chance to work on you now without any apology. And I was here for physical without any food. Awful experience ever. The stuff was rude.

Office not clean, need updates. Office staff not very friendly, pamphlets needed restocking, entrance door in need of repair. Wait was way too long with many patients continuing to enter. In desperate need of customer service training - invest in it.

I truly thought that this visit would go well. However, I should have prepared myself when I arrived 20 - 30 mins before my scheduled time and it still took me over an hour just to be called back into aroom. Though their were two receptionists at the front that were very sweet and polite. After finally getting placed in a room, I thought great now we are on our way. I was very wrong. The nurse came and asked questions and wrote down info. (I did fill out everything online, I thought that would make my visit smoother) The doctor herself came in and was so brief and rushed it was horrible. She wasn't interested in much of anything I had to say nor was she attentive to the situation. With all of that I just wanted to get my prescription and leave. I actually had to ask them if we were finished because no one ever came back in to say anything. I gave them the medicine I usually have that works for me and they sent it across town to a pharmacy, then to another, then back to the one across town. It was a truly horrible experience and I would and will not recommend her to anyone ever!

Pros: (1) Excellent that I could see Dr. on a Saturday!!! A real plus! (2) Girls in office were pleasant, as was the P.A. I saw. It was a comfortable appointment. (3) Office was clean. (4) Scheduling my appointment via websitewas wonderful! (5) P.A. was very thorough getting dates of all of my latest exams. She also explained the next two upcoming appointments and why they would be needed, to establish a baseline. (6) Location of office was marvelous!!! Right down the road from home! (7) I'm not a sexist, but it was nice having a female doctor for a change. Cons: (1) Really, really unnecessary to have to repeat filling out forms which I had already done at home the night before ("to make your appointment more efficient" . . . a joke!). Then nurse and P.A. also verbally repeated same questions. Four times same questions were asked! CRAZY! (2) I had read online how long the wait was for patients at that office. I was naïve and thought I wouldn't have a similar problem. WRONG! My appointment was scheduled for 9:30; I didn't walk out of office until 11:45, and the amount of time with P.A. was only about 20 minutes, at max. (3) Somehow, I just didn't feel as if I had connected with them as well as I had hoped. It was my first visit, so perhaps we will click as we become familiar with each other. Overall: Whether or not I would refer my family and friends to this practice is "so-so". Not as warm-&-fuzzy as I would have liked, but certainly worth giving them another chance. Besides, it was one of the few practices which took Medicare.

Love the doctor and the girls that work there just dont understand why it's always an ht wait in waiting room than another 30 minutes in the exam room of waiting. But wait is worth it i gues because love thecare i get. I think maybe it's an overbooking issues.

I did not like the wait time, and I didn't like the fact that I had to fill out between 8-10 pages of information. Specially when I had prefilled my forms online. The whole point of checking in online is soyou don't have to do it when you go into office.
