Plan to be at this doctor all day. These people do not know how to schedule appointments. I've dropped off a patient there 7 times and each time they are waiting one hour past their appointment time in the waiting room. Finally seen by the doctor and are there for another half hour. The doctor made a mistake on this patients eye surgery and made him pay to get another surgery to fix the problem. They took advantage of this patient who is mentally handicapped. Very unprofessional.
