Extremely long wait for an annual checkup appointment, at least 6-7 mos. The office staff is very good, but the quality of doctor/patient interaction has somewhat degraded . The appointments feel rushed, as to stay on schedule.

I have never been served on time and often have to wait for a very long time to be seen by the doctor. It is hard to get a call back from staff. It is hard to get a timely appointment. Believe this doctor has taken on too many patients and forgotten about his long time, loyal patients.
