I had an appointment to see the doctor, when I got there his staff didn't notify me that doctor is not ever in the office. They put me in an office and a lady came in and started taking history,

For my first appointment I waited an hour just to be seen by his Physician's Assistant for 10 minutes and to tell me that they couldn't do anything until I got an MRI. For the 2nd appt. I waited an hour and 15 min. for him to tell me that I needed Pain Management. Also, he did not recommend anyone to go to. I had to go find someone on my own.
