His office called me to ask if I could come in earlier than my 10:30 scheduled appointment time. I arrived at 9:50. It's 11:17 and I'm still waiting to be seen, and the exam room smells like urine. I know he's a good doctor but service is just as important. I'll likely not return.

Missed a fracture in my x-rays. Spent less than 2 minutes in the office each visit and would be on his phone the entire time doing personal things. Very unprofessional
