The inefficiency and total disregard for the patient and their time is a direct reflection on the provider. The inability or lack of willingness to understand and address this issue is a further poor reflection. I do not and would not recommend this provider to anyone!

Wait times are ridiculous! I waited nearly 4 hours to see the doctor for 5 minutes. It's disrespectful and rude to have a complete disregard for people's time.
