I waited for 3 hours before I saw the doctor. My appointment was at 11:30 and did not see him until 2:30/2:45. I was so furious I could not even concentrate when he finally did see me. I waited 3 hours for the doctor to spend less than 5 minutes with me. While I respect that the doctor is busy I also expect to be respected for my time.

every time I have annual appointments here, they are usually 1 1/2-2 1/2 hrs behind. it is not uncommon to be put in an exam room and wait for an hour before I see the doctor
