DR Lichon is the best DR I have ever had. The employees who bring the patient back to the room and take the initial info and go over med's , they are very good too. The front desk employees however are a different story, They seem very unorganized.

Receptionist's focus on "enforcing the rules" sometimes leads to forgetting customer service.

Dr, Lichon and his office staff are to notch. One note I have is that I was not told the prescriptions I needed were to be faxed. this only became an issue because I no longer used the pharmacy they had on file. Just asking if that is the pharmacy to fax to would have saved much anquish.
No Rating Given
Dr. Lichon has never been on time for an appointment. He ignores new symptoms, has never done any follow up scans or bloodwork.
