I do agree that he needs to get his staff up to date about schedulling their patients however if you take the time to find out why he is behind on his patients appointments you will realize that he spends the extra time with each and every patient so that he will know EXACTLY what is wrong with each and every patient. Don't you want him to do the same for you?

Update Aug 2, 2017: You know that I am the full caregiver of your patient. You as the Dr have not spoken with me about the truth of what your staff is doing and lying to you about. Without speaking with the patient nor her caregive, you came to an unfounded & invalid conclusion. No physical threats were made to anyone. Yet I promised to file a formal complaint & Done. I am fully aware of your policies in which your staff operated outside of. I'm am an intelligent Army Vet not a thug. Respect it.

After seeing this Dr for over 12 years, I visited his office in Winter Park yesterday for a 2:45pm appt, I arrived at 2:30pm and was not greeted or asked for anything until I knocked on the window at 3pm asking if she needed anything and to make sure someone knew I was there. An hour went by and nothing had happened. After asking several times if they knew how long it may be b/c my daughter had another appt after an injury she had at 4:30pm. At 4pm, I still had NOT been seen or told how long it
