I was referred to Orthopedic Specialists for a foot/ankle injury. The appointment desk sent me to see Dr Atchison, and had to wait several weeks for the appointment. At the appointment I was seen over an hour after my scheduled time despite arriving early. I was seen less than 5 minutes and was told to go see Dr Cox, which required another several weeks for the appointment. The staff was not friendly or helpful. When I complained I was told by the office manage to take my business elsewhere
