Horrid! Bad service!

This place is the absolute worst patient experience I have ever had. Aside from my primary care physician giving this as a reference for an eye exam, I would never come or recommend this place. It's been over 1:20 minutes and they have yet to see me. Very, very bad service.

With appointment wait time is +1hr. Staff not organized juggling patients around. Exam room waiting time min of 30 min. Visit with Dr 5-10min. (So don't understand why there is such a long wait) Dr asked me if I liked this office. (I'm guessing she can read faces well) Dr asked why and I informed about the waiting times. Dr said it was due to insurances. I guess Dr thought I was speaking appointments. I was talking about office visit. Appointments? Forget it 3 months waiting time for a visit.
