After being treated in ER, we were told to follow up with Dr. Gannoway's office. I've called since 8:00, and after being on HOLD for 10 minutes, with intermittent messages that "your call is #3 in line, #2 in line, THEN when your call is #1 in line, you get another message that "We're sorry please leave your name and number and we will call you back!" I've done this 3 times this morning and 3 1/2 hours later, still haven't heard from the office!! I'm considering changing docs due to this!

The wait for this medical office is horrific. My first experience was a 4 hour process for 15 minutes of face time with the doctor. I was a work in appointment, but that was excessive. Back for a recheck a week later with a scheduled appointment and I been waiting almost 2 hours in the waiting rooms... wonder how long until I'll be seen this time. Very poor scheduling in my opinion. You just can't waste people's time like this.

Excellent outcome. Very professional. Wait time in office was way too long. Every time I went in it was over an hour. I'm willing to wait for such a good doctor but wish he could do something about excessive time patients have to wait. Everyone sits there and grumbles the entire time. Some just got up and left.
