Would not recommend

Very long wait for there being one or two patients. Nurse was unbelievably rude and childish. Physician himself unhelpful and made me feel uneasy. Will not be returning and would not recommend.

Two Stars

Went back for a followup visit after EGD. Appointment at 3:00 P.M. 1 patient in the office and several came in after me. Took an hour for him to see the first patient and I sat in the room for another 30 minutes before he saw me for 5 minutes. Need to respect the patients' time.
