  • Addiction Medicine

Run.
If you can just get an appointment that they keep

The person who schedules appointments and handles refill requests is extremely unreliable. Once I get an appointment, there is a 50/50 likelihood it will get cancelled and rescheduled. Once there, they are always running quite late. That being said, the staff at the Richmond office is very nice, and Dr. Gaertner, when I can get to see him, is pleasant and helpful.

Seek help elsewhere

From the front desk, to the management, to the doctors this place is a joke. Front desk is rude and uncaring, management has no clue what's going on, and the doctors don't even look twice at you. Throw you a prescription (even if it's not helping) and shove you out the door.
