Waited 1 hour 10 mins to be told he was running a hour and half behind. Asked how long that was going to take and received I'm sorry and don't know. Staff is rude and don't answer your questions. Second time there and combined wait time over three hours.

Tried for months and months to get an appointment over, but they just kept saying that they'd get back to me. I just wanted a second opinion. I sent them all my records three different times. Never did see him.
