    I had a follow-up appointment to review lab work. After the medical assistant took my blood pressure I sat in that room almost an hour before the receptionist came in and told me that the doctor had gone to lunch and derided not to return to the office. The receptionist printed out my lab results and said everything looks normal, do you want make another appointment? I guess his time in more valuable that mine. Needless to say I'm looking for a new doctor!
