Three Stars

Matt the PA is great! Liz and the medical assistants are good too. Dr. U did a procedure for me once and his ego was horrible! I never want to see him again. The admin staff in the front are not professional. They spend too much time talking badly about people after they leave or complaining about callers. They have been rude to me on the phone too when scheduling appointments. Hopefully now that they were bought by another company their morale will improve. I really like Matt and he's the only reason I still go there.

Staff Issues

True the Dr is seldom there. The staff left to administrat are just awfull !!! I di not agree that PAs should diagnose or treat without supervision!! Results I've gotten from Dr U himself were predicably good, but the staff issue makes me unwilling to return as it has only gotten worse, not better over this past year
