Took an entire month to get seen. Given 2 time periods to choose from and the scheduler recorded the wrong appointment time. I was told I had to come back 6 hours later to be seen. Completely unprofessional - I'm going to have to find a doctor that will actually see me.

Dr. Hewitt is one of the best doctors in town! I'm glad I chose him. I've been to so many other doctors, and they didn't care as much as he did! I highly recommend him!
