Wish regular patients could make appointments, it is hard when you have to wait, wait, and wait to be seen. Have to be seen for refills, and staff is generally cheerful or courteous, other times the overload gets to them on a daily basis as well. They are very busy, and deal with very different ranges of clientele, so I completely understand when they feel less than cheerful. Little privacy in back, but Dr, McDermott takes time to listen to your issues and will do his best to help you. Thanks!
I spend a lot of time waiting around to be seen, as he does not accept appointments. There is no privacy back in the exam rooms because the walls do not go all the way up to the ceiling. I can overhear the doctor and his staff talking/yelling across the exam area about other patients' health information. He does not provide refills on his medications, which requires me to go monthly to get my prescriptions, which means an entire morning spent waiting because he does not accept appointments. He is courteous and engaging.
