Made an appointment 3 weeks ago for 4pm today. Was told that he is running behind. Behind means 4 patients are ahead of me, and they each get at least an hour. So, looks like he will be finally able to see me sometime after 8pm. I've been seeing him for over 5 years and am sick of playing his games as a patient. I had a really hard day today, and have been trying to manage my anxiety without medication. Very often have been on the edge of losing it. Time for a new doc. He doesn't care.

The worst experience ever. Waited over 5 hours for my first appointment, and was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder within 5 minutes of talking with him. I'm not bi-polar. INSISTED I use the pharmacy located in the same building, even though I use CVS. WHAT A JOKE. HE SHOULD HAVE HIS LICENSE REVOKED.
One word QUACK.

Why Does Experience Matter?
