If I could give Dr. Mutafyan 0 stars I would. I had an appointment on a Saturday at 10:00am. When I made the appointment I scheduled something for Monday morning. I received a call from Dr. Mutafyan's assistant that he could see me on Saturday. I asked how long would it take, since I had other plans that morning. She said about 30 minutes. I was at the office on Saturday at 10:05am and filled out the usual paper work and waited until 11:20am when I left letting them know how disrespectful he was
