I can not wait to leave this practice. While some doctors are good. The office staff and support teams systems are terrible. Long appointment times after they hook you as a new patient, computers that do not work for weeks, inaccurate insurance reporting, lots of noise, dirty, and dated environment.
Having been a happy patient of Dr. Pula at WIR for many years I decided to stay after she became more and more unavailable but now am rethinking this. In December 2012 I became ill with a chest cold that hung on for 3 weeks. This is very unusal for me and made an appointment. Just before the appointment I became aware of why I was having trouble breathing...I was very allergic to Guaifenesin (Mucinex) and was breaking out in hives, throat closing, very bad. When I went into my appointment I was in a full blown reaction...the PA did not seem concerned and said I had what everyone else was dealing with, she presecribed me some cough medicine and sent me on my way.
The next day my reaction was still on and I thought I might have to go to the hospital, the reaction continued for days into the Christmas holiday. Luckily one of my relatives is a nurse who informed me that the cough mediine I was prescibed has the very same drug as Guaifenesin in it.
This is extremely serious and could have caused me a very costly trip to the emergency room or WORSE.
