Patient Comments (2)

I called his office for an emergency appointment. They answered professionally and offered me an appointment for the following day. I was greeted by a very sweet and professional young lady who took my information and insurance card. She led me to the waiting room and I was seen within 30 minutes....more

Doctor and staff are extremely competent. That not withstanding, the waiting time was excessive. I routinely have to wait 25 to 30 minutes before the initial exam/dialation.
