Great doctor, horrid wait. 1 hour and 10 minutes to be seen. Apt with the Doc took less than 5 minutes. I like the doctor, no complaints with his professionalism or knowledge and is very nice. But the scheduling clearly does not value the time of their customers.

The waiting time was just too much. You can't give patients an appointment and expect them to wait for 2 hours, that is not right.

I'll definitely be going back and will probably recommend him to my family members. The staff were courteous and the wait time was short. Good magazine selection and I appreciated that the TVs weren't tuned to talk shows. The doctor tooktime to examine my eyes and explained everything to me, answering all my questions patiently.
