Review for Dr. Hayek

Two hour wait every time I have gone. Staff assumed I was having a Mammogram prior to exam. I was not. The main aggravation was the 2 hour wait. The office has never called me with the results of my PAP test. I had to call them. He is a good doctor but office practices need improvement.
