Bad experience. Saw Dr. for A-Fib. Scheduled for 3days in hospital for Inversion and introduction to Tikosin. 2end Day found out no inversion had been scheduled. 4th day was prepared for procedure only to find that no anesthesiologist had been scheduled, and would have to wait another 5 hrs to see if one would be available. Had no food or water since previous day. Attending Dr. cancelled procedure and said I could come back in 3 days. I live 3 hrs away. Wasted a week of my life.

Great doctor but wait times have become ridiculous. 2 hour wait last time with 4 people still ahead of me to be seen. Had to re-schedule because I work and can't spend a day waiting to be seen. Now at re-scheduled appointment waiting 50 minutes already with 3 people still ahead of me. Don't make appointments and expect to be able to work that day.
