Well first off, no matter if you have an "appointment" you really don't, as his office is always packed to thegills w/30 other people who all have the same "appointments" as you. So you sit there for countless hours in a VERY uncomfortable office. You could all have a plague & it wouldn't matter. Then when/if you finally see the doctor (even though you have an appt with the DR, they try to foist a PA or something on you, and if you say you want to see the dr. & were scheduled to see the dr. then you have to wait even longer!) & he is not the most empathetic person I've ever met. He doesn't want to truly treat you, keeps talking about needing more visits, needs to "get to know you better", even after you've seem him a few times or more, he continues to say that. So I'm not sure what is holding him back from really committing to treating you, especially if you already have a treatment plan from before that works for you, but no, he still wants to be VERY tentative & treat it slightly. The only thing I can think is that he wants you to come in over & over & over again for more visits. To basically suffer. Haha Also I'm completely confused as to why there is a jam packed waiting room every single day (though if you call to ask if you can come a bit later to not wait so long, as it's very uncomfortable "waiting room" w/no magazines or anything to help, they tell you NO, you cannot be late! So you must be there to sit for all those hours, don't ask me why? Even if you have a condition that makes sitting in their "chairs" & benches very painful to your condition). I'm not sure why they can't schedule patients every 15 mins. or every 30 or every hour so people don't need to spend their entire day there. It's a mystery to me. The doctor is okay, that's as enthusiastic of a response as I'll commit to there, but the office is nothing short of horrific.
