I drove 2hrs to see him and was late due to road work and getting lost several times; I finally find the office and have to pay $3.00 to park and because I was late he won't see me and then the office manager came out and rudely asked me to leave and that Dr. Howard is not going to accept me as a new patient... I had waited in pain with no sleep for months for this appointment, it finally arrives and I paid $8 in tolls, $40 in gas, $3 to park all for nothing I still have Lupus w/no doc.
