    Dr. Held is a great doctor, but the wait times to see her are in my opinion way to long. Just about every appointment I have ever had with her is an hour and a half to two hours to see her. I feel like she doesn't appreciate the value of her patients time.

    Dr. Held is not in Network. She makes sure she get paid the full amount and she gives a lousy Medical Coverage Claim form that she does not feel out or sign. It is a nightmare to get the claims back.
