She was very reassuring

January 17, 2018

I made the appointment 1 year ago for 9:30a.m.- I arrived around 9:20a.m.--I had to wait until 9:50 a.m. to begin appt & found that they made 2 appointments for 9:30 a.m.--when I asked why--I was advised they just do that for some times--not a good answer & also I was disappointed that having made the appt 1 year ago I had to wait...I feel my time & the other patients' time is just as valuable as the doctor's time--
