I always wait so long to visit him in his office, about 1/5 to 2 hours for appointments scheduled ways in advance . This is not proffetional and right.
in Coarsegold, CA |
My time is just as important as his time. I went to his office just 3 times and each time it was at least 2 hrs after my appt. time that I got to see him. The last visit, my appt was at 3:45. Yes, I was late and did not get there til 3:55 but I was shown to a room then sat in the waiting area for 30 min. only to be taken to a room (now 5pm) and told that it would be probably another 1 hr. to 1 1/2 hrs. before I would see the doc I walked out and insisted that I not be charged for visit
in Fresno, CA |
My appointment with Dr. Hanks was at 1:00 PM and I was not seen by anyone until 2:30 PM. I was told that the reason they were so backed up is that patients keep showing up with out and appointment and we have to take them. What Dr. takes patients without an appointment? I waited 1.5 hours to get a prescription refilled. The office is shabby and has a bad odor.
