I have seen Dr Schaeffer for 20 years. He only works one day a week now and I can't make it work with my schedule. I need to have my check up and the office is charging me 63.70 to send a fax to another doctor.

The wait to be seen by the doctor is too long! I came for my annual pap and had to wait in the lobby 45 mins. I guess that's not terrible but when I had to come back for a ultrasound I had to wait again for 30 mins. This is extremely too long considering you must drink 40 oz off water prior to the appointment and not use the restroom. The worse part is that the staff you can see seem to not be doing any work. I think it's time for a new doctor...
