Patient Comments (1)
in Miami, FL |
Does not respect his patients time. We arrived 30 minutes prior to our appointment time. The doctor did not arrive until 1 1/2 hours later. Sat in the waiting room for over 4 hours without being seen. Had no choice but to leave. I understand the Dr should take his time with each patient, but we were the fourth and were never seen.
