Appointment time was met. I didn't have to wait in the outer office. The Doctor remembered me and my particular problem and the visit went very well. I would recommend to anyone. Also, the office staff are courteous and helpful.

After waiting for almost an hour past my appointment time, I was seen for 5 minutes and was told that the reason for my ailment was something completely different than what I explained. After explaining it yet again, I was told that I was wrong even though I knew the reason. There was absolutely zero attention given to my pain and I was told to just leave and call again in a month if it doesn't feel better. After 9 months of pain I would think that a professional would atleast give me the luxury of an examination.
