I waited all afternoon! If it wasn't for the tv I would have left! The wait was because she had an appt. and was late, so all patients had too wait. This effected the whole schedule was off. The doctor is kind, thorough, knowledgeable. Though professionalism is poor. I would not recommend her.

This doctor's professionalism is absolutely horrible! My mother was referred to her and she scheduled her first appointment. She wanted 4 hours and was told she would not be seen because the doctor had to leave. This is very unprofessional and not acceptable!

I had to wait over three hours to see the doctor. Based on the other people in the waiting room. I got the impression this was not a rare occurrence. Not once did the doctor apologize for making me wait. The doctor should learn how to schedule patients.
