Extremely overbooked. My medical history was taken in a open hallway alcove with some questions whispered to protect my privacy. Then i waited another 25 minutes in the waiting room. Then called to wait in a small waiting room. A hour and 23 minutes after my 10 AM appointment the Dr walks in and claps me on the shoulder saying "good news! your ultrasound is clear" The two assistants made it clear wrong patient, Dr makes a nice compliment about not looking my age and leaves! As he is departing he tells his assistant this is your fault, wrong room I assume. He says nothing like see you in 10 minutes or sorry for the confusion. After waiting another 10 minutes I leave the office and will never return. Take it for what you will, so disappointing. Also, all the girls in the office were very nice. When I called later in the day to make sure i was nor charged she said no I was not charged and hung up on me.
