I went there with an emergency, I left there the same way after they told me to leave. They gave me a large bill before I saw anyone. When the doctor finally came to see me he didn’t look at me, just asked a few questions, then told me it’s the same as otherS that come in, and I was told to leave. So I crawled back to my truck, with no help. and no one there cared but I got a well over $1000 bill for nothing. I don’t get paid if I don’t do my job.

the staff was professional and courtesy, the wait time was minimal, if I needed something it was given in a timely manner. If someone did not know the answer to a question, they found out from someone who did. Discharge instructions were thorough and explained in a manner in which I could understand. very nice place, clean, no odors. The management team was extremely friendly and accessable and did not make you feel like they are above interacting with the patients. Dr. Ward was extremely thorough and scheduled appts as quickly as possible.
