"Dr. Morel has a very friendly bedside manner! Extremely knowledgeable. However, her medical assistant, Marcy dropped the ball when it came to scheduling our appointment, sending the Rx to the pharmacy, and overall has a poor and negative attitude when we're dealing with a stressful time for our daughter. It's unfortunate because we're treated like numbers instead of humans."
