My experience at the Dr office wasterrible I drove 25 miles for my appointment at 245 per the appointment card, and was told in a very rude manner, that I was late. The male receptionis said it was at 2. because I didn't have the card in my possession he insisted I was late fortunately I still have the card. How very inconsiderate. I am going to find a different doctor.
