My husband and I are both patients of Dr. B. We are both happy with his patient care. But are very disappointed in trying to get appointments to return to see him. They will NOT make appointments more than 2 months out. Therefore when you are told to return in 3 or 4 months you can not schedule an appointment. You have to call in a month later. Then you have a problem getting an appointment because they are already booked 2 months out. Very disappointing!
