Main problem is getting this guy to do his job. Waited over three weeks for MRI results. Now he has not called me for days to schedule next test idespite repeat calls from me. Does not seem to care about the patient. They barely gave me any information at all. I'm going to have to do my own research to get my questions answered. Their staff was friendly enough, but they didn't go out of their way to help me. I feel like my appointment was pointless. None of my questions were answered, nothing was accomplished, and I felt worse when I left. The office was easy enough to find.
