I spent over an hour in the waiting room and maybe a total of four minutes with the doctor. I was very disappointed in my past visits here. They need to take more concerns to patient care.

My visit was informative. However, I needed to tell her that I left a message on her e-mail 3 times and did not get a response. This was very important to me as it had to do with my insurance and my employment. I now have to wait an additional month before beginning treatment.
