Went to both clinics. Upon leaving Kapahulu clinic, I was suppose to see HIM again in one month. Receptionist (without telling me), scheduled me with his P. Assistant...Luckily, I caught this in time..This PA, is NOT a Doctor..I pay to see a Doctor..Not a Physicians Asst.; especially when it...more

A 55 minute wait is unacceptable and the staff even made me wait longer after I complained, it's simple next , there is always another physician, your staff is a reflection is a reflection of you
