Patient Comments (1)
Washington DC |
I arrived early and even saw the patient ahead of me finish her appointment 5 min before mine. I was confident Dr Fries was going to be a doctor that stays on time. NOPE. Waited and waited and waited. Thirty minutes later she decided to see me. I pay to see a doctor on time. Patients should get a discount for the longer they wait to make up for the lost wages at work because of the doctor's inability to stay on schedule. Also it was a nightmare just to make an appointment with Dr Fries.
