wait time to be seen by the doctor was extremely long. arrived 1/2 hour early to ensure enough time to check in, didn't get seen until almost 1 1/2 hours past original appointment time. this could be a problem for parents who have children who have special needs or don't have patience to wait for long periods of time.

March 23, 2017

We had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. There was no clear reason given for this delay other than seeing other patients. There should be a much greater respect for time of the patient and parents. This is truly an unsatisfactory situation that should be addressed.

I love Dr. Witchel, but often have to wait an extended amount of time well beyond my appointment time slot to see her. Sometimes I wish she'd be a little more aggressive with her treatment plan with my child

Dr. Witchel is super friendly. She's my favorite doctor that I have.
