Crenesse is great, staff and wait times are not

Dr. Crenesse is a wonderful, warm doctor. She listens to the whole problem and gives sound advice, avoid overmedicating or treating just one symptom. However, her staff is VILE. They are literally the worst people I've ever come into contact with: rude, unprofessional, bullying, and spiteful. One woman who I believe is named Jeanette is absolutely hideous. Poor Dr. Crenesse often seems rushed and can't spend as much time as she would. Her waiting room fills up fast in the mornings because she takes walk-ins and she's popular.

Office staff vs great Dr.

Dr. Crenesss is wonderful but most of what they say about the front office staff is true. Just went thru multiple attempts to get a simple maintenance prescription refilled; only dogged persistence from the patient succeeds.

Waiting never ends

Dr. Crenesse is professional when it comes to her work, but when it comes to time she has her patient waiting longer than the actual set appointment. You get fooled by thinking you are called into a room only to wait one hour until she arrives to check on you and mean while no one inform you how long you will be waiting or check in on you. Not only that, you're told that you get your result in the mail within a certain amount of weeks only to have to call them two months later wondering what happen to your result in the mail. Then you get a phone call from her staff who has an attitude to say since you called you're not getting the result in the mail. What else is there to say but to run the other way and look for a better place!

Five Stars

personally I am very happy with Dr. C. H er office staff is terrific. And follows up with her pts. the only problem she has in her office is one of the receptionists who never wants to make an appt. and never answers the phone and is amazingly rude. if she was gotten rid of i think most pts would be very happy. about the doc no complaints.
