      The wait is waaaay to long. Waited at least 1 hour for each visit with an infant. Waited over 2 hours at the last visit and left without even seeing the doctor. and he is NOT worth the wait. Rushes appointment, talks so fast you can’t understand him and doesn’t explain anything when you ask questions.

      lack of compassion and practicing like it is still 1980. He lacks bedside manner and the entire new visit was less than 10 minutes
