This office is so unprofessional. No regard for people that have to work. I've been waiting approximately 8 months to see this doctor and cleared my schedule to do so. They call last minute to cancel and reschedule. They did this at least twice to me. Pushing me out months each time. The person that called is so rude. My PCP referred me to him and I will make sure he knows about this. Also, they only give afternoon appts to referrals and holds his a.m. appts for his patients, no exceptions.
