I saw my doctor arrived the office after my appointment time. Why booking an appointment when the doctor didn't show up at work on time? Waited an hour for a 6 mins chat with the him and got sent to the physical therapy. Customer service didn't help much either.

They Failed to identify what exact my problem is in shoulder even after X-Ray, MRI and Physical Therapy, Doctor informed problem with my tendons and need physical therapy as a first step, Medicine and Injections are second step and no surgeryrequired, but his assistant Doctor said there is a fracture in my shoulder and must need a surgery immediately. Both of them explained different problems in my shoulder I am totally confused. Doctor never spent more than 5 min to discuss my problem, he left patients to his assistants even though they are not in sound in medicine. Just fed-up with their treatment.
