Very strange doctor. If you are 10 minutes late, they cancel your appointment. Easy to get an appt. Very strict rules. If you are late they dismiss you, but try and get his office on the phone is a different story. You have a long wait. He is nice enough. But if I ever got stuck in traffic and was having a heart attack, and you were late, he would dismiss you.
