When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

As a new patient I had to wait 2 hours to be seen. The reason for my visit was I settling in this area and needed refills on my maintenance medications. Instead of addressing my current needs, she gave me paperwork for lab test and follow up and when I asked her about my refills, she wrote a prescription for a one week supply (not even a month supply) for a condition I've had for years! It was a prescription for cold sores- and I know this is not a medication of abuse! She talked down to me as if I had no idea what I was talking about or as if I had no idea about my condition. Funny thing is I'm a pharmacist and could not believe her lack of patient care. Finally, when I told her I was a pharmacist, she just disregarded me more and said I needed a follow-up. Even if I wasn't a pharmacist, I could not believe how this doctor was treating me as patient, especially after waiting for 2 hours and not addressing my problems. I even offered her to contact my previous doctor that I've seen for years for my records and that wasn't "lying" about my condition but she refused. She didn't even examine me! No wonder it was so easy to get appointment. I will never recommend any of my patients to this doctor, especially this doctor who just likes to waste your time and money- and more money on referrals!
First of all I waited for around 40 min. And once I was taken back I waited in a room for about another 10 min. When the Dr. Came in she told me how she was finishing her lunch. She was completely cold and dismissive. I expressed to her how I had a sore throat and my glands were swollen and she quickly perscribed a z pack. I expressed concearned of other symptoms that she Did not even address. Long story short I went for a second opinion and now have to see a specialist. Wrong diagnosis! This was terrible.
