San Marcos, CA |
chronically late, even if you get the first appointment of the day. always end up sitting there for 30-45 minutes for my appointments. a couple of times, the doctors not even in the building and i end up walking out. if they want to charge $50 for a no-show patient then i should be able to get a $50 bill when they waste my time.
