Atlanta, GA |
Not recommending Dr. Daly due to scheduling courtesy. We sat in the waiting room for 2 hrs awaiting to be attended by Dr. Daly. Not fair...her appoint was at 2:15 we didn't see the Dr until 4:30. According to my mom this is normal practice for him.

Dr. Daly helped me with a complex problem others couldn't. He was able to do my surgery laparoscopically/minimally invasive. He took all the time I needed both before and after surgery. He does a great deal of surgery laparoscopically/minimally invasive. I would definitely highly recommend him to others.

I was fortunate that Dr. Daly was able to see me the same day I called for an appointment. I was unsure what was going on with me. The office worked me in and said I may have to wait because Dr. Daly's schedule was full. They told me to arrive at the beginning of office hours and they would fit me in when time allowed. I waited a bit but Dr. Daly took all the time I needed like I had a scheduled appointment. He set me up for the tests I needed immediately. Couldn't have been a better experience

I was initially happy that they would be able to see me on the same day but soon was disappointed. My appointment was at noon, half an hour later a receptionist poked her head out and said that Dr. Daly would be in the office in about 10 to 15 minutes. There were three people ahead of me in line already waiting to see Dr. Daly. 15 minutes later Dr. Daly had still not shown up in the office. I had to cancel my appointment and LEAVE to get my kids back from daycare. Total waste of time
We try to see patients as soon as possible. Working patients in the same day is often possible. Same day work ins are told they may have to wait a while when they make the appointment. The work in patients are told to come to the office at the beginning of office hours and that they will be seen as soon as possible. Wait times for work ins vary depending on number and complexity of scheduled patients.

While you often have to wait for him to return from the hospital, it is worth the wait. He spends as much time with you as you require to have your questions answered. The office staff is very professional and try to accommodate the patient's needs.
