Went to physician's office as a first time patient. When originally scheduling appointment online was told by stadd the online schedule does not correlate with what is actually available. Thankfully I called before my appointment because the date I scheduled online was not available. Waited for over 45 minutes. Not one person was called by medical staff to be seen. Left without being seen by physician due to extended wait time. Clearly overbooked. Would not recommend.
