When Dr. Anetakis finally saw me I had been waiting for 45 minutes. This could have been because of an emergency or something that I did not know about, but he seemed distracted for the first time since I've gone to him The appointment was somewhat hurried.

This office is very busy and the only thing is sometimes you spend at least two hours in the office for the complete appointment. It would be nice to maybe cut the time down a little bit. But they do take wonderful care of me.
