Visits can take time because he gives each person the time to ask questions and understand the answers. Same quality of care is given to every patient. Next time you are waiting remember that to get truly personal care sometimes takes a little more time and be thankful he cares enough to spend the time needed to give that kind of care. Or do you want a Dr that is in and out of the room without explaining anything but is fast and you leave with no questions or concerns addressed?
