Patient Comments (2)
Lebanon, Mo |
While he is very compasionate, caring dr, his office schedules far too many patients in not enough time. My appt was scheduled for 10:30. After driving for 2 1/2 hours to get there, I arrived nearly an hour early. At 10:40, I was called to the back. I was initially happy with the efficiency, until I was put in another waiting room where I saw most of the people that were called back before me! Very disheartening. I overheard the conversation of a lady who had been waiting for 2 hrs.

Very caring, thorough exam, & explaining in lay terms of what is wrong, what will be done, & what to expect.
