He has done 2 surgeries on my back and was late for both of those. Have had 6 office appointments. Waited 1/2 to get called back for 2 of these days. An hour wait for 2 of these days. 1 1/2 hours for 1 day and these were just the waits in the waiting room and not the extra time I waited in the room. Last time after waiting 1 hour 15 minutes and not seeing any of the 3 people before me come out yet. I said I needed to reschedule. Was told wouldn't be till end of next month. I just walked out.
