Front desk clerk seemed like she wanted to strangle each person that came in. She was very unwelcoming but the rest of the staff was good. 4 stars overall.

Staff wasn't knowledgeable. Doc forced me to take xrays. It was obvious, all they cared about is making money from my insurance. Gave me a pain injection and that was it.

I showed up early and was seen right away. I was able to fill out the documents ahead of time on zocdoc and all I had to do was sign the standard forms when I checked in. Process of getting thexrays and being seen by the doc was super fast and easy. Highly recommend!

The doctor himself, was quick and informative- but the experience of the office and other office staff was really uncomfortable and undesirable. Conversations with the admitting nurse seemed judgmental and strange, and I felt quite tossed about in this office.

I really liked the doctor a lot. I think he could have been a little bit more personable but I appreciated how quickly the visit went through. I also really appreciate it when my doctors take the time to greet meor acknowledge me when i'm limping through their area. Also I think one of his nurses could work on her bedside manner. I was on the xray machine for my foot and clearly unable to balance myself and the nurse took forever to operate the machine, when I expressed discomfort I was told to be patient, which I found incredibly aggravating in my already awful predicament! The doctor was great though.
