Patient Comments (1)
Jacksonville, FL |
I really like Dr. Vasquez as a doctor, but the waiting time at my appointments is absurd. I have NEVER been seen on time, or even within 30-45 minutes, and sometimes longer. (They call me back but I have often waited 30 minutes or longer in an exam room to actually see him.) Sometimes he is not even in the office. The waiting room is tiny and often overcrowded and uncomfortable.
