      Wait time to see the doctor is always 1 hour after my scheduled appointment, with no apologies, excuses or explanations. Overbooking seems to be the problem, based on the sign-in sheet. Doctor is knowledgeable but is always rushing. Hard to find a doctor that takes time to explain treatment plans.
      After the doctor had ordered some lab work, I went to a Labcorp and found out some written lab orders needed clarification. Apparently, I found out that this happens all the time and he refuses to use the forms where labs are checked off. After calling many times, and waiting for the staff to fax the clarified orders, by then it had been two hours. This is inconsiderate and rude. I will complain further as someone needs to tell this doctor to comply with rules and respect other people's time

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
