I will never know. My wife was just released from the hospital following a stroke. Told to follow up with a neurologist. Told first available appointment was July, 4 months from now. The lady answering the phone was terrible.

His office needs a complete staff overhaul, he has an office manager that works one day a week, and has two offices and makes patients wait two to three months to see him for a 15 minute appointment
