I cannot speak to the actual level of care that this doctors group provides, but I can say that the customer service from the support staff is totally lacking. I recently took my 78 year old father, who has been a patient for several years for an appointment at 9 am. He was turned away promptly due to his medicare supplemental insurance, not being accepted. When he offered to pay cash, he was also denied. Now, its not that he was denied or that his insurance wasn't taken that bothers me. It was the cold, unfeeling and uncaring manner that the receptionist treated him that upsets me. When they called the day before to confirm the appointment they didn't bother asking if there was a change of insurance or ever brought it up. When he was told he would have to see another specialist there was no apology for the inconvenience or even slight thought that he was a human being. When he asked who he should see, there was no attempt to give a recommendation or referral or suggestion. He was simply told to consult his insurance directory. So now my father has to seek out a new specialist to examine the growing blind spot in his vision with no help or remorse from this medical group
