    No matter WHAT TIME you schedule your appointment for - you will wait THREE HOURS to see him. And that makes him a BAD doctor. Nothing else matters - if you can't get in to see him in under three hours, and you're losing time from work, and you're in agony - it doesn't matter how good he might be if you ever did get to see him. His administrative staff is the ABSOLUTE WORST I have ever dealt with.
