Took almost 2 months to get 1st appt. Took 10 minutes with me to get to know me. Ordered more blood work and set 2nd appt for 6 weeks later. At second appt I waited 75 minutes before telling the receptionist I couldn't wait any longer and would eed to reschedule. They offered me a new appt in 7 weeks. I'm going to find a doctor who will see patients in a reasonable time period.
