Made me wait over 45 minutes at my first visit, no apology. After a brief 60 second exam, he had 1 foot out the door for the remainder of the visit. He refused to see me at my second appointment because I was 15 minutes late. Apparently with him promptness is a 1 way street. Staff will not answer...more
