How was your experience with the doctor?Doesnt care about patients when they truly need her. If you cant pay 50 balance. Even in a emergency situation they tell you to go to ER. Just like sorry too bad. Might as well go to UNIVERSITY

How was your experience with the doctor?The last question was not applicable. When I took my son for his 4 month shots, the receptionist asked if I'd like to schedule his 6 month visit. We scheduled it 2 months in advanced, got time off of work and made the appropriate accommodations. I showed up the day of the appointment only to wait for the nurse to tell me that we were scheduled for a day too early. His shots could be given but they wouldn't count and would have to be redone. Now I have to make accommodations again to come another day, and they weren't willing to work with me to fit me in since it was their error. I called the rescheduling line to see if we could be notified in case of cancellations. I was told that it is he patients responsibility to call every 30 min to an hour to check. This is disappointing because it's the offices responsibilty to review your chart and schedule appropriately. I
