Nothing Special

I was in a car accident recently and referred by my lawyer to this Ortho doctor. I arrived on time for my appointment at 8:30 am and was not seen until 2 hours later! When I did get to see the doctor, he was nothing special...he took some xrays, looked at them and said nothing was seriously wrong with my neck and prescribed some PT and time off from work. His Bowie office looks outdated and could use free wi-fi for patients while waiting which I suggested to him. The only thing I like is that they have extended office hours for PT including Saturdays.
