While she was 45 minutes late for my appointment last year, I was told I would have to reschedule after running 15 minutes late this year. I was stuck in traffic for 90 minutes and called ahead. The woman wearing a head scarf at the front desk was rude, I literally burst into tears because of her and I'm not someone who cries often. Definitely looking for a new cardiologist now.
