  • Excellent. Listened to my concerns.. Excellent staff.
    Thorough and knowledgeable
    Overall the visit was ok. I appreciate the efforts of the office staff, they were able to get me on a wait list so I could see the doctor soon. If I hadn't been on the wait list, I wouldn't have been able to see the doctor until sometime in February, for an urgent condition.The doctor listened as was attentive during the visit, but it seemed like some things were glossed over.I think the biggest issue I've had is, I had a pretty bad reaction to a prescription and have called twice and messaged twice (MyChart) over the course of two days, but as of now, near close of business on the third business day, I haven't heard back.
