Wait times are exceedingly high. Every time I went there (with an appointment that was scheduled at least 2 weeks before), I had to wait from anywhere from 45-70 minutes AFTER my scheduled appointment to see the doctor, then the doctor was so rushed, I wasnt able to get clear information from him or have him answer my medical questions. After I decided to go to another doctor for a 2nd opinion and shoulder surgery (because of the above), this office made it impossible for me to get copies of my medical records and MRI/Xrays, The place is run like a puppy mill.

Great Doctor. However, you only get five minutes! At this time, I'm only willing to give two stars on accurate diagnosis! Thank you very much.
