Patient Comments (8)

He was a very strange man, spent most of his time talking about his research and could not answer simple questions about what steps were going to be taken next in my treatment.

He seems like a good Dr, but, not worth a 4 hour wait. The nurse told me everyone waits 3-4 hours to see him. 2 people were actually snoring in the waiting room.

You never get to see Dr. Fertig, and he kept pushing his books or whatever. The wait is totally unacceptable. 3 hours....REALLY? I went one last time to get my prescriptions refilled, and am going to find a different Dr. The staff sucks.
