excellent first appointment with Dr. Polat.

June 11, 2018

I had a 12:45 appointment. I was taken back to a room at 12:30. I waited for 30 minutes to see a fellow. as he left he said that the doctor had stepped out and would see me first when SHE CAME BACK TO THE CLINIC!!! I waited an HOUR for her to return and see me. I left the office at 2:15. I was about to walk out when she finally came in. it is beyond incomprehensible that a physician would not be available to see her scheduled patients.
