I have always had good experiences with my Dr and staff.

He spent time with me however it was a huge waste of time. My appt was at 9am...finally saw Dr. at 10:00 and left office after 12 noon! He listened....but did not hear. Everything was black and white to Dr....when my life isn't. Got off topic several times with his favorite saying....Who's Driving this boat! Oh mercy.
