Keeping paying patients waiting does not seem to be much of a concern in this office. The techs use good infection control measures. I have serious doubts when a provider shakes hands without first sanitizing his own. No sinks in the room. There are somewhat useful hand sanitizers, but even those were not used by the physician.
