Patient Comments (1)

in Wadsworth, OH
Excellent doctor, but prepare for a ridiculously long wait time. I respect his skills as a doctor, but I'm sorry, I'm also a working professional and to have to wait for an hour and a half past my appointment time is unacceptable. Change your scheduling if you can't stay on time.
