Patient Comments (1)
Hyannis, MA |
Spent 2 hours in the office. 1/2 an hour with the nurse. 45min waiting for the resident to check my eyes( she spent 5 min with me), waited for Dr. Milke 40min, after complaining to the receptionist, I was finely seen by the Doctor, who spent 5 min. with me. This was my first appointment with him and the last.
