Patient Comments (2)
Stafford, VA |
We (my two young children and I) showed up 15 mins early to our appointment and waited behind one other family. By the time we were put in a waiting room it was way past our scheduled time and we were told there was only one patient ahead of us. We never saw a doctor. We waited for an hour and 15 mins past our appointment then, since it was the end of the day the office couldn't give us a refund on our copay because they had shut the register down already. I did not reschedule.

Not a very nice man. More worried about himself than his patients. Try to be friendlier to people and less condescending.
