Everytime I took my mother to this practice to see Dr Linster we waited 30-60 minutes to see him and then he spent maybe 10 minutes with us. After waiting to see the doctor then you go to another area to wait for someone to draw your blood. Every visit he prescribed a new medicine and didn't take the time to explain why. When she had a problem to discuss he never followed up. I have a found her a different doctor at a different office to see.
