Sorry to have to ruin Dr. Altenbern's good rating but....My husband's appointment was at 2:30pm but they wanted him there at 2pm to fill out paperwork. At 3pm he was called back. At 4pm he came out of the door saying We're leaving. He never did get to see Dr. Altenbern. Why does a new patient have to wait for 2 hours, with no apology forthcoming from anyone and still not see the doctor? Could it be that he is on Medicare therefore not important? I hate to think that but very bad form!
