Stop whining and be thankful they will see you. Not many places will take medicaid. They are doing the best they can. No doctor's office is perfect.

The fact that I ignored several red flags that popped up within my first five minutes there should have been enough to make me walk out the door, but I didn't. Guaranteed I'll never be walking IN that door again!!

First of all, the ladies behind the front desk, although very nice, were dressed ENTIRELY inappropriately for a family doctor's office. Leave your skin-tight, sleeveless club dress and push-up bras at home. Really, I was shocked this passed as okay, as it's nowhere near professional. The rest of the time, skin-tight, lowcut shirts and skin-tight jeans and inches of makeup were the norm. Every single time, everyone looked like they were planning on going out clubbing the second work was done for the day.

Secondly, there are no doctors, just nurse practitioners. My nurse, Patti, before even discussing my history, tried to sell me hair growth treatments that one of her friends assumedly runs - "Tell them I sent you and you'll get a good price". HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! If your doctor tries to sell you an expensive cosmetic procedure, when you have a newborn baby in your arms, I think you can probably gather they're not going to care about your problems. Also, she only works two days a week, and you're not allowed to see any of the other doctors that work there, so if you have a very tight schedule (which I DO), then you're just SOL.

I have a rare and extremely painful genetic condition, which has been verified by two separate doctors, one of which works at the University of Colorado genetics department, so it's probably safe to say he knows what's going on. After hearing this, and telling me that she was familiar with it from working with children in the past, she proceeded to basically tell me that since blood tests didn't confirm what SHE thought it was, I was lying. She was not interested in helping me with my pain via referral (since they do not handle pain there, which is OK with me, all I wanted was a referral) and even though I made it perfectly clear that I'm in the ER at least once a month, sometimes more, she refused to do anything.

The irony of this all is that moments before making it clear that she believed I was lying about what multiple other doctors have seen and treated me for, she told me that a lot of her patients stop seeing her because they don't feel like she cares. Now I know why. She *doesn't* care.

Avoid this place at all costs. I only came here because they took Medicaid, but I'd do literally just as well to sit at home and tell myself that the pain that makes me unable to stand from my chair or buckle my own seatbelt is just in my head and save the state a few bucks. The fact that this horrible "healthcare provider" is getting any money for the "care" I received is ridiculous.

So in summary, here's the pros:
They take medicaid
They have a very useful online portal
They get you in and out quick

Here's the cons:
Unprofessional staff
Completely inflexible scheduling
Staff that thinks they know more than people who specialize in your problems
Ridiculous amount of appts necessary before a referral is given
No willingness to make a plan to fit your needs

If I could give negative stars to Patti and the rest of the staff, I would.
