Last three office visits it took over an hour after the scheduled appointment time before we were seen. Don't schedule for appointments you can't keep
St Louis, MO |
Not easy to get in to be seen at all. Had a bad cough and general illness and couldn't be seen for a week. Seems to have more patients than can appropriately handle.
