I had an appt. with Dr. Kohlstoe recently and I didn't get to see him for 1 hr. ,10+ min. I sat in his office for about an hour without any maagazines, etc. to read. I finally opened the door as it was getting stuffy in his office. Dr. Kohlstoe was (and also in the past) inconsiderate, rude and...Read More
