Horrible- will never return! He wouldn't listen about how ill I felt, and knew what was 'best' for me. I ended up very ill from medication and took months to recover.

This guy is a pompous quack. If you want simple guesswork for a diagnosis and to be accused of drug seeking, look no further.

I went to Dr Wait for a diagnosis of suspected ADHD, along with Major Depressive Disorder, OCD, and Anxiety issues. He immediately sent me to his colleague down the hall for testing, and said he wanted to see me back in his office after my diagnosis was completed by Dr Wolfe. I was diagnosed with ADHD. I then scheduled an appointment with Dr Wait for my follow-up. He was very rude, dismissive, and condescending. He even asked me what I was doing there, after HE TOLD ME TO SCHEDULE A FOLLOW UP!!!
