It takes forever to get an appointment and his front office staff is a a disorganized nightmare. They are rude and impatient. The office supervisor is a smart-alek with an attitude. One time I waited almost an hour in the exam room for the doctor to show up and when he didn't I left. When you get to see him he is great, but it is not worth the hassle. I would not recommend this office to anyone else.
