Staff very pleasant in office but poor at follow-up for prescriptions. Still trying to get my test strips. They have not responded to Medtronic prescription requests, and they called in the wrong Crestor dosage to my pharmacy. Trying to straighten this out, I constantly get a recording that says "This line is not for prescription issues." It's a Catch 22. Frustrated!
