Overall Rating 2.8 / 5.0 ★★★★★
Chai Bracht ★★★★★ 3 months ago
I waited two long hours to have my intake done and then another hour waiting to be seen by a nurse and ultimately waited another thirty minutes to be given my test results that were taken a month ago. I was never called or updated if my test results were in. Everything here is very backed up and the wait times are ridiculous. Understaffed and the staff that is here is irritated that they are understaffed. Unpleasant experience not worth the free tests they offer... It is unfortunate because many people that need the clinic rely on one income and taking upward of 4 hours for an appointment doesnt look good at a job.

I went here to get a copy of my birth certificate and the lady was very hateful and hateful to others that were being waited on.

I found out i was pregnant with my 2nd child down here. The nurse was so nice to me and gave me all my information i needed to see the doctor.
