Dangerous

Misdiagnosed a family member, who could have died as a result. Prescribes meds without seeing patients. Very dangerous for elderly or ANYONE. Should not be practicing.

Don't bother.

This office is a complete mad house. Most of the staff is completely rude and disorganized. The phones are almost always sent to the answering service and when they are not they are "busy" most of the time. If you can through on the phone and need a doctor quickly you can expect a 2 week wait for an appointment.In addition, there is no privacy as all of the patient rooms are right next to each other and the walls are so thin you can hear everyone's visit with the doctor.
