The office staff is terrible and rude. She is closed on Mondays, so you have to call back on Tuesday to schedule an appointment or go to the Emergency Room. Referrals are a joke - had a specialist doctor fax her information so I could get an additional referral for my follow-up appointment, and the office just IGNORED the fax. Showed up for my next appointment with this specialist and was told they never received the referral from my PCP. Had to drive to my PCP's office and demand the referral because they were too "busy" in the office to fax one over to the doctor so I could continue with my appointment. Keep in mind, the original fax from my specialist doctor was sent a month previously... you would think, at some point, they weren't busy and could have contacted me instead of just ignoring it. This office is just terrible and I would rather go without a PCP than go back here for one more visit.
