Great doctor, caring staff, but all three times I’ve been I’ve waited minimum one hour to get into the exam room, then additional time on top of that to see the doctor. First time, I waited 2 hours before I wascalled back (afternoon appointment, so I expected some delays, but 2 hours is excessive). For the two other morning appointments, I made sure I had the first appointment of the day and I was the first patient checked in and still waited an hour for each. If I need further gastroenterologist care, I will be seeking someone who can accommodate better appointment promptness.
