Patient Comments (1)
Lewiston, ME |
No matter what time your appointment is, you will wait for at least an hour. Bring a lunch and a book with you. And don't dare mention to the doctor that you have been waiting for quite a while. He will berate your expectations and make you feel like your time matters not. I have been a patient for 20 years and will never set foot in there again. I left my last visit in tears.
