Staff is rude and uninformed. Horrible to work with. I go to Dr. Bishop in spite of his staff.
Dr. Bishop was my doctor for nearly 10 years and I never had any complaints. He is personable, caring and competent, and if it matters to you, he also has a wicked sense of humor. His staff is wonderful and I never had a single problem with anyone there. The only issue I had with my medical care is that Dr. Bishop is a very traditional medical doctor and while open minded about alternative care, is not too knowledgeable about it. But that was a minor concern. All in all, an excellent Doc!
Dr. Bishop's staff has been very polite, professional, and helpful. They patiently answered all my questions. Dr. Bishop, himself, is quite possibly the best GP I've ever been to. He made me feel instantly comfortable, listened to my concerns and then took time to carefully explain my options and make recommendations. It felt like conversing with a very knowledgeable friend.
