no phone support

You just can't get through on the phones to anyone there. I don't think they have enough phone support for their office. I text, I go to the patient portal, I email with no results. Good luck getting through to anyone there.

POOR EXCLUSIVE UNAVAILABILITY

OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR REFUSED OUT OF STATE GRANDCHILDREN TO BE SEEN BY FAMILY MEDICINE. WE WERE MEMBERS FOR OVER 26 YEARS AND WERE BARRED FROM GETTING TREATMENT FOR LYME TICK BITE. WE HAD TAKEN GRANDCHILDREN IN FOR EAR ACHES AND BRONCHITUS 4 TIMES BEFORE. GRANDCHILDREN HAD HEALTH INSURANCE,GRANDPARENTS WILLING TO PAY CASH, ADMINISTRATOR REFUSED TREATMENT BECAUSE ALLARA WAS NOT LISTED AS THEIR PCP. OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR SAID DOCTORS WERE UNAVAILABLE TO TALK TO US ABOUT THIS. ADMINISTRATORS COMMENT"TAKE THE KIDS TO THE EMERGENCY WARD". SHOULD NOT EVEN GET ONE STAR FOR ANYTHING.

Two Stars

I have been a patient for over 15 years...now that the practice has grown and the office has multiple doctors, I feel like just a number. Only see Dr. Allar one time a year, if I call with something he is never available...have to see the Nurse Practioner, if I want care. My yearly physical used to be about 20-30 minutes...consisted of a 5-10 minute conversation, 10-15 minute exam, he discussed his accessment and make recommendations. My last physical (2012) was all of about 10 minutes... lots of small talk...when I mentioned a few issues I didn't feel like he cared. I was sent to lab for the standard blook work up... Then I received a standard draft fill in the blanks letter about 7-10 days later with blood work test results. With regards to prescriptions - the electronic request always have an issue... after 3-4 times, I now leave the office with a hard copy of the prescription to save myself the time/aggravation of getting to the pharmacy and the pharmacist telling me they do not have a prescription.I am looking for a new primary care doctor!
