Very disappointed in Dr. Black's assistant and staff! Echoing what Wes S said below. I called 3 weeks ago to setup an appointment due to my blood pressure being high. I was told to leave a message with Dr. Black's assistant which I did. Despite her voice mail greeting asking not to leave multiple messages, I left a second message a week later. Finally, after receiving no calls, I called the receptionist again and told her my experience. She said the office would call back the following week. After again no return call I called again and finally was able to reach Dr. Black's assistant who said that since it had been so long since I had come in as a patient I was now considered 'new' and Dr. Black no longer sees new patients.
Dr. Black's position regarding not seeing new patients is perfectly fine - I can go somewhere else. My issue is that it should not take almost a month and repeated phone calls to finally relay that information.
Your health is too important-if your Dr. is unresponsive pick another.
