Appt at 12:30. Showed at 12:15 to do paperwork but told to come back at 1:00. Came back only to be told they were still not even done with the morning patients & would take lunch as well before starting my appt (putting me at least 90 mins late). I tell them to reschedule which was annoying but fine until (blond) receptionist says he's a surgeon so delays are expected. Over scheduling & hours of delay are not acceptable unless you have the courtesy to call your patients and push back appts.
