We have taken my father 2 times to see Dr. Alberico. Each time we had to wait 1.5 hours to see him. At dad's last appointment while we were in a smaller waiting area, a patient navigator called a patient to her and discussed the patient's treatment plan, what to expect in front of other patients. The patient navigator never asked the patient if she wanted to go to a private are, or if it was okay to discuss her plan in front of others. I felt so sorry for this patient. I get the impression that the wait time is their normal practice (other patients were complaining)

My appointment was cancelled and rescheduled without notifying me. Not acceptable! Was called while traveling and no voicemail was left. Called scheduling and was told my appointment was still on the schedule and call was most likely a Reminder . When I arrived for the appointment I was told that Dr Alberico was out of town and a new appointment had been made without my input. Not a professional way to treat a patient.
