Patient Comments (3)

He does not respond to phone calls or emails, Very difficult to get an appointment - takes months, even for existing patients who are trying to schedule a follow-up appointment for test results.

The wait to see the dr is never less than 45min after he scheduled appointment. You spend most of the time with the PA. I would prefer more time with the dr.
