What is going on in this office?? My sister just waited 2 hours to see you. No one said anything to her. The front desk people left her sitting there and they left! She a cardiac patient. She was looking for a plantbasedcardiologist and was excited to find you. But she was left for two hours with no contact from anyone. I’m so upset
