Patient Comments (1)

Great Dr and Surgeon. But definitely not respectful of his patients appt times. It's absolutely ridiculous for people to sit with drain tubes in the waiting room for 4 or more hours some even up to 7-8 hours past their appt time. Definitely many other Drs to choose from to not have to wait on this...more
