Very disappointed. Brought my son after two bouts of pneumonia. Did no pulmonary evaluation testing; grudgingly offered a chest x-ray. Forgot we had had the x-ray ("Are you still here?"). I said I'd like to hear what the chest x-ray showed and he simply said he was not alarmed. I am scheduling follow- up with a different doctor.

I made an appt for a new consultation after moving to the area. After being rescheduled twice due to the doctor's schedule, I waited over an hour before leaving the waiting room and cancelling my appt. If he is too busy to keep a schedule, perhaps he shouldn't take new patients. Perhaps it is an office issue, but I found this lack of a good first impression to be a big red flag.
