First of all, the good: the reception staff are friendly and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more from them. Furthermore, the nurse who took my vitals - a European lady whose name I forget - was fantastic on both visits. She was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and had a great manner. Unfortunately the M.D. I was there to see, Dr. Debelen, did not even come close to matching the level of service that his staff provided. Indeed he offered a shockingly low level of service. Here is a summary of my two visits:1) I was referred to Dr. Debelen by a local hospital, having undergone a non-surgical procedure there. At the hospital, the resulting wound had of course been thoroughly dressed. Obviously, in order for Dr. Debelen to examine the wound, I had to remove the dressing. I duly did so, and he examined the wound. He advised me to return in a week if there was no improvement. He then concluded the presentation - while the dressing was half attached and still needing fixing. He left the room. I wondered if I had made a mistake, and that he was going to return in order to apply a new dressing, or at least fix the one I had ripped off. I waited. And waited. Sure enough, it really was over, so I had to go and look for him in the corridors, to ask him to help me with the dressing (I had not brought any medical supplies with me, and the adhesive no longer stuck). He asked a nurse to give me some tape. This gave the impression of a doctor who doesn't care much for his patients, something I am not used to.2) Dr. Debelen did not strike me as being very knowledgeable during my first visit and my expectations were low for visit No.2, but he somehow managed to fall below what I would term a basic level of care: before the hospital visit mentioned above, I had been prescribed anti-biotics, which had caused an allergic reaction. The hospital had then prescribed penicillin, but it hadn't had the desired effect - the wound was not healing sufficiently. I sat on a regular chair in Dr. Debelen's office . Instead of going and getting another chair and sitting down next to me, Dr. Debelen sprawled out across the patient bed with his laptop, in the same manner my cousin would if he was watching YouTube videos. He then decided to prescribe me the same drug that had caused me the allergic reaction in the first place! I was astonished, and told him, "No, that's what I was allergic to". Not only did he not appear to be helping, but if I had not been totally switched on, he may well has caused me some more problems. Overall, this is the worst medical 'professional' I have encountered and I certainly will not return.
Dear Dr. Dolue Ezeanolue (Dr. EZ) and Kind Staff:My account has been turned over to collections last week because I was billed (and rightly so) for injections that took place after my insurance had run out. I was not told this. Now I owe the office upwards of $1000 which I am willing to work on with monthly payments. However, the woman I dealt with in your collections was not the most accommodating person. I tried to work with her but all I can afford is $50 a month. I'm on a strict budget, I am HIV+ and on very expensive life-saving medications and all the costs that that entails, and I also see other doctors for that medical condition as well as have expensive blood work 3 times a year. So now I have to find a new pain doctor all because she (collection agent) refused to work with me). This pains me because I thoroughly enjoyed coming into your office and seeing people who I now consider my friends because they are so caring. I find it so hard and sad to think that I won't be coming back under my Health Plan of Nevada because of the actions of one woman. I will miss seeing the nice, professional people in the office who took such great care of me---not only my pain but always asked about my HIV status and genuinely cared. It's very, very sad to me to have to locate another pain office as Dr. EZ and his staff were always so kind and helpful. In the future, I will definitely recommend APEX but not after recounting this horrible experience with one collection agent in your office. So sadly and with a heavy heart, I say goodbye to APEX and my wonderful "family" of medical professionals there.Sincerely,Rick Grayson 702-376-9016 (DOB 11/1964)
If you are just browsing, I will get right to the bottom line: Dr. Seiff is a fantastic doctor and neurosurgeon. I give him my highest possible recommendation. If you already know you need to see a neurosurgeon, go straight to Dr. Seiff. Six months ago, Dr. Seiff performed a double laminectomy (and more) on my lower spine (L3 through L5 and below). Prior to the surgery I was having near debilitating nerve pain in both legs; bad enough that simply standing up was painful. Today I am pain free. I found everything about Dr. Seiff to be top-notch and first-class, including his wonderful staff and assistants, who constantly communicated with and calmed a very nervous patient, me. The doctor was extremely careful and detailed in explaining everything, before and after the surgery, allowing me to understand totally what was going on. I want to stress that, if you are having pain in your head, neck, back, arms or legs, you need to see a neurosurgeon first. If you have already received a diagnosis from a different kind of practitioner, especially if it entails surgery, you need to get a second opinion from a neurosurgeon. In my case, another surgeon had already scheduled me for both an anterior and posterior fusion when I hit the pause button and went to see Dr. Seiff. It may be the smartest decision I ever made. Neurosurgeons are medical doctors with extremely rigorous advanced training. Dr. Michael Seiff is well-qualified, well-trained and very experienced. But in the end, it is his skill in the operating room that makes him special. In my case, that skill has given me a new life and I thank him every day for his superior work!
I am overwhelmed with gratitude to a local pharmacy that came through for my family today. I have the unfortunate and chronically debilitating disorder of being bipolar. I have (as we all do) struggled to try deal with it every day of my life. At the end of November this year I lost my health insurance after turning 26 and had no idea what hell awaited me, as I have taken health care for granted nearly my entire life, and doing so always had the benefit of a RX saving program. This was the first time I had to fill my regular RX as a cash paying patient. I was shocked to find out a month supply would cost me $1439.00 at Walgreens (not a joke) and the prices hardly fluctuated after calling almost 10 pharmacies in the area. With obvious emotion in my voice I got into contact with a local Pharmacy that after hearing of my situation said he felt he could not ask more from me than $100.00 .. after we both cried for a few moments I realized our health care system is so screwed up .. and yet there is still some really kind hearted and compassionate people out there that will do whatever it takes to help others in need. This pharmacy deserves so much more than a Facebook post, but I felt I HAD to get the word out that they helped me and my family today in the most special of ways. Thank you Partell Specialty Pharmacy for allowing me to continue to try and lead a happy and productive life with my children by giving me a little break on something that I consider to be one of my very important lifelines.
It is a shame that Dr. Dewan, who is a great Pediatric Endocrinologist, hires such an unprofessional office staff. I would give him 5 stars, but unfortunately I have to deal more with the front office staff than Dr. Dewan. Never returning your calls in a timely manner, interrupting you while you are explaining what is needed, and claiming they never received faxed prescriptions from a pharmacy they always do business with all means that customer service is not a priority. I am sure they have many tasks to perform and probably deal with many people who are difficult, but at this point I would probably get better service at the VA. Unfortunately I can not tell this directly to Dr. Dewan unless I have an appointment or send him a certified letter in the mail. Dr. Dewan is great with my son and I highly recommend him. However, I wish he would put more effort into selecting quality staff who believe in customer service and doing what is right. It may not be fair to give him a low rating because of his staff, but ultimately he is responsible for the hiring of said individuals. I promise if the experiences improve, I will revise my review.
Over the past four years I have been receiving Testosterone treatment at the Ageless Men's Health at 2911 N. Tenaya Way #105. Every week I meet with the receptionist and nurses at this location and the treatment I have received has helped me physiologically and mentally as well. I've always been received at check-in desk with a happy and respectful greeting. After checking in, every nurse meets with me in the lobby cheerfully and escorts me back to a room where I get my injections. I feel welcome every time, as I am met with a smile and every nurse asks how my treatment has been helping me, and also checks with me on how life is treating me. Because of their caring welcome to me, I feel accepted, respected and very comfortable. Because of my weekly visit at this location, I have improved physically and mentally as well. I really enjoy being assisted medically, and I look forward seeing everyone at this facility as all of them have become friends of mine whom I trust.
I have patroned this pharmacy for quit some time. They are a wonderful pharmacy with a caring friendly knowledgeable staff. I to am in need of narcotic medication but also have many other conditions to which I need prescription medication for.I understand this policy as anyone who has the need for pain medications does. Why would they fill a new customers narcotic scripts and possibly not have enough medications for their customers who have been loyal and have other conditions? I'm sure they are aware of "pharmacy shoppers" I am not saying that you are but I am sure you are aware of the government's regulation on such medications. All pharmacies are limited on the amount of controlled meds they recieve. I believe they are taking care of their loyal customers and not "pharmacy shoppers" who make it difficult for patients truely in need of narcotic meds to get their medications.
Dr. Coy is a nice doctor and all, but if you are experiencing anything out of the normal every day illnesses he is not the doctor for you. He is a pill pusher and trys to see you as quick as possible. It is very hard to schedule an appointment because he has hundreds of patients. I have been experience the same symptoms and pain for 4 months now and he doesn't have any answers or possible answers for me. He forgets what medication he has prescribed me and doesnt seem concerned about my pain and symptoms that i constantly have to remind him that im having. Been seeming him every two weeks hoping something will change and he will start to see that whats going on with is not normal and is affecting my life, but he just says he doesn't know and attributes symptoms to "anxiety", and tell me not to worry about it. I would not recommend this doctor at all.
I have suffered with sciatica pain for over 10 years. I love to take long walks, but after 20 minutes or so, I would be hobbling back home, in serious pain. I would have to lie down with my right leg elevated for 15 minutes until the pain subsided. Even after that, I would be limping around the house for the rest of the day. Then, I was referred to Dr. Francis. After only 2 visits, I am now taking long, brisk walks for 45 minutes with NO PAIN! When I get home, I don't have to sit or lie down at all. I am able to continue functioning normally for the rest of the day with no discomfort! I can't believe it! I feel like I have a new lease on life! I highly recommend Dr. Francis and have complete confidence in his ability to help me correct other medical issues that I have, as well. Thank you, Dr. Francis!
Phone rings 20 times no one will pick up line. If line is answered you will be put on hold immediately & no one will pick up for 30 minutes. If you disconnect call back lines busy. Your prescription never ready as promised, wait time 4 hours to several days. Sounds familiar that's what experience I had with chain mills like CVS & Walgreens for last 7 years till I found Family care Pharmacy 6 months ago. This Guy’s awesome, Pharmacists & staff who really cares Filled all my prescriptions fast while I wait in 10 to 15 minutes. My phone calls answered immediately. Everyone is super nice, patient with my questions and didn't make me feel like an inconvenience which the chain pharmacy did on a frequent basis. I was just a number there while here I am a Patient they truly care. Now me & family going nowhere.

- Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
- Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
