Find Another Doctor!!!!!

This doctors office is not cohesively run. You always get an answering machine when you call and you have to make multiple calls to get a return call. We had to call and call to schedule tests that needed to be done. We were not even given notice about scheduling until the hospital called and said my husband was scheduled that day for tests----no one even told us we were scheduled. VERY poor follow up and communication. We will look elsewhere for a doctor we can trust.
