I am highly disappointed with this Dr. The wait time is beyond terrible, expect to be there at least 3 hours, can be longer. Plus, he is so overwhelmed that important tests or referrals didn't happen. I needed a Halter Monitor test, but it was broken so after 2 wasted trips I just dropped it! Same thing with a blood pressure monitor, big aggravation! Needed to see the Heart DR. didn't happen for several months and I requested to see another specialist, that Never happened!
