Staff is incompetent

Our experience with Dr. Bonikowski (himself) was adequate. Dealing with his staff was a nightmare. The staff was not helpful when trying to get prescriptions filled. These were prescriptions that Dr. Bonikowski prescribed. After several follow up phone calls and a week later, the staff got rude and we still had no prescriptions! We were told (by the staff) that they were helping us as a courtesy and they had other patients so we would have to wait. The insurance company was more helpful!
