Patient Comments (1)
in Boston, MA |
An absolutely superb doctor, however, his office makes no effort to make sure patients are seen at their schedule appointment time. A wait of 2 hours beyond your scheduled appointment time is not uncommon, and a wait of less than an hour is virtually unheard of.
