Bedside manner
The staff who greeted me were very cold and impersonal. After filling out the proper forms I waited over one hour to be seen and my entire appt with the doctor in the exam room took less than 15 minutes. Ifeel the doctor was very rushed and didn't even go over my situation completely.

The doctor seemed attentive to my needs. He was pleasant. There were at least a dozen patients in the waiting room when I arrived at 9 a.m. One hour is a long wait. It doesnt take into consideration that I have time restraints as well.
