Great Doctor, Terrible Receptionist

I needed an appointment to see Dr Vawter. The receptionist was rude and hung up on me. I have had problems getting through to Dr Vawter prior because of this same receptionist. Please get rid of her... PLEASE.

Dr. Vawter has been my private physician for 20 years...

Dr. James Vawter is one the finest and most knowledgeable physicians I have known in my lifetime. He is always up-to-speed on new medications that become available. He knows the good ones from the bad ones. He has been available via email 24-7 for a nominal fee. He is the most service minded Doctor a person could ever find. That is why he has been not only my Doctor for two decades but my entire family is under his care. I highly recommend his services.
