Patient Comments (2)
We have seen this doctor almost every year since 201. Each time we arrive for our appointment we are asked to wait for up to an hour. Recently we waiting 90 minutes to be seen by the doctor. The staff become defensive and rude if you complain about the wait times. Rarely do they apologize and NEVER have the called to let us know that they are running late. The doctor is a good doctor but I feel he does not care anymore about his customer service. He also overbooks apps to bilk medicare.
