Very minimal wait, just sat and was called back to the exam room. Answered all my questions and concerns with easy to understand language and good humor. Never too deep into the technical language. Listened to my story as to the cause of my injuries as it was not clear before due to my condition when I arrived at the hospital, but I was able to sort it out later from other sources.
