I do not recommend using this office. The facility is dirty, has bugs and there are very few staff members that are polite and professional. Acquiring paperwork requires multiple calls and follow-up. Scheduling an emergency appointment...you won't be seen for a week. Follow-up ER visit? Can only be scheduled on Tuesdays at 9. These policies are ridiculous and don't insure the quality of care that is necessary.
