I waited over 45 minutes just to meet Dr.Knego. I I was scheduled for surgery the following day, but only met with his assistant twice. When I said something about the person driving me having an appointment in half an hour I was told I had to wait 15 minutes. His scheduler then came out and stated I was rude and the surgery was cancelled.
