Staff is completely unprofessional. Have been 5x in the past 12 months, each time they have lost our file and had to refill out everything. Then twice they refused to see us period because they misplaced the file. I even call before every appointment to be sure they have it, yet somehow it comes up missing 24 hours later. It's a 1.5 hour drive for me. Needless to say we WILL NEVER BE using him again.
