1. Appointment time was 11 am..told doc is not there yet, should be only a few minutes late...then told be there in 10 minutes, nope not until 11 50 did he appear...just not in the building yet 2. seemed to focus on one aspect of the three relevant issues and he could not help with that one...others not spoken of 3. Waste of time and money, but others coujld not help on this matter. Just wanted a younger doctors opinion current with treatments...got nothing.
