Hollywood, FL |
I don't know if dr. Kranson is a good pulmonologist because I didn't get to see him. I was the only person in the waiting room my appt. was for 9:20 after filling out a ton of paper work I looked up and there was six people in the room. The nurse came out and called a patient in, not me. I waited a little longer thinking I would be next. Wrong someone else was called in. So I waited. A little later the nurse came out and called me in total I waited two hour. I had to go to work.
