JUST AWFUL my appointment was scheduled at 4pm and they took till near 8pm to see me. This is ridiculous. People who came after me were seen before me. When sitting for a long time my back pain is outrages and i couldn't stand my back after i left here. They shouldn't schedule so many appointments...more
