The office smells horrifically like smoke and you are repeatedly forced wait 45 minutes to an hour due to the overbooking of patients. All appointments are booked 15 minutes apart and the doctor does not review the chart.

By possibly one of the worse experiences, I've ever had with a doctor. I have a mass on my liver and we can't biopsy it and from the test he can't tell for 100% whether it's cancerous or not. He isn't sure. Instead of doing something about it he said due to size and my age, it's a waste of time. Cancer runs in my family like brown eyes. I told him I wasn't comfortable with that response and unless he could do a test to find out 100% it wasn't cancerous I wanted it removed. He refused.
