Tried to make an appointment with Alvarado, was unable to within 2 week period so opted to see the N.P. I purposefully got a 7:20 a.m. appointment time to reduce/eliminate lengthy wait time since they just opened for the day. I got there early to take care of any paperwork. I did not get called back to the room until 8:10 a.m. never informed why they were late. All I got was pulse, B.P., lung sounds done in order to get prescription refilled. Ridiculous. My time is important too.
