"I would not recommend this office, rude and confusing. When my husband first went to the practice he saw Kelly Weaver, APRN, she is great and we would’ve like to continue with her but Dr. Feldman is so controlling that he has to see the patients also which caused tremendous confusion on my husband‘s third visit. Dr. Feldman started meddling with his testosterone which another doctor is totally handling for the last year, and instead of focusing on the diabetes focused on that. Then when my husband went to get bloodwork recently they said the bloodwork was at quest, he had it done and then found out it was only done for testosterone and no A1C or other labs. These tests need to be done every three months. When I called the office about this everyone I spoke to was rude and then they told us that we shouldn’t come back and we got a letter from Dr. Feldman that said it would be best if my husband went elsewhere. They are covering up for their medical mistakes do not go to them."
