Dr. Royster is a wonderful doctor. He has been very kind to me and is very compassionate. He includes me in treatment decisions and seems to truly care to want my pain under control. The staff at the office are not as friendly. The PAs and other office staff could care less about you. I have felt judged and treated poorly. Also the wait time is unacceptable. I understand wait times at doctors office, but over an hour past appointment time every visit is ridiculous.
