    I waited 3 hours and 30 minutes to finally be told by the staff to reschedule. I had to pay my co-pay and I did not even see the doctor, the PA saw me for a quick scan, I'm not sure how that is even billable through medicare. Staff is inconsiderate.

    No regard for the patient's time, had me at the hospital at 6 AM for outpatient procedure. Walked into pre-op at 12:40 PM. Hospital called him several times, could not find him. Finally got a call back to say he was on his way, he was doing something w/ his kids!!! Got his feelings hurt when I expressed dissatisfaction w/ him being so late, said he didn't have to put up w/ this, stormed out of pr-op and refused to do the surgery. He must be a GOD for the hospital to allow this.
