    Three visits to his office and each time was a minimum 40 minute wait. One visit was to follow up some labs I had done. Turns out they scheduled me to see an assistant who confirmed they received the labs and asked if I wanted to schedule an appointment for the doctor to go over the labs with me. What??? Almost an hour wait only to schedule another appointment. Totally ridiculous. I can't say how decent the doctor is because over three visits I didn't spend more than 10 min with him.
