I made an appointment to see Dr. Arumugam, and while I was on my way there yesterday to my 1 pm appointment they called me and asked me to come at 2 as the doctor was still in surgery. I headed to doctors officer for 2 pm, they asked me if I could come back at 4 because the doctor was still in surgery, and I said ok. I go back for 4, he is not there yet, but on his way. About 6 patients in front of me, and 1 walked in after me. The 6 get called in, then around 4:45 i got called in, medical assistant asked me a bunch of questions, she then said the doctor would be in shortly. I heard people in the hall, waited patiently, but then got quiet. I opened the door to the room I was in around 5:25 pm, and the place was in darkness. The staff all left for the night, locked me in the office, and I was never seen by the doctor. I got out of building, called emergency #, and office manager came, apologized, asked if they could rectify problem. INCOMPETENT!
