I have been seeing Dr. Imoto since 2012. Yes at times there may be a little wait time for her to see you during your scheduled appt., but when i was seeing another doctor a week and a half ago, the doctor looked at records and made the comment that its surprising im still alive. Most die within 3 yrs with my condition. Im alive now and looks like maybe for at least another year. 30 mins of waiting / 2 more years of life in my situation. Ill wait the 30 mins and take her out to lunch.

I waited almost an hour for a recent appointment with Dr. Imoto before finally giving up and leaving. About a half dozen other patients were waiting for her as well while she was, literally and figuratively “out to lunch”! This is the 3rd (and last) time I have had an appointment with her and been made to wait like this. To keep an office full of patients, apparently all with overlapping or conflicting appointments, waiting while she doesn’t even bother to show up on time is inexcusable.
