Waiting time is unacceptable, not just once, but every time, others come later and get served first, appointment times mean nothing. a real shame

'CAN'TGO WRONG WITH DR. ZARCONE
Wait time
35.0 minutes
Dr. 'Valerie' has been my Primary for 27 years. She remembers things about me from years ago with great recall. She is quick to refer to specialists if there is any question about a condition. She works tirelessly ! Truly an "old-fashioned Doctor in a young body" !!! A pleasure to have a Physician you can trust- that is knowledgable and up on all the latest medications and procedures !

Can never get through on the phone. Wait time is ridiculous. Sitting in the shabby waiting room subjects patients to icy blasts in winter as there is no foyer in the office. Bathroom is behind locked door; don't drink coffee before your visit. Test results are left on answering machines without details and no one but the doctor can explain them, even is by some miracle you reach them on the phone. Would be well served by moving to a more modern facility, hiring more staff, reducing amount of patients and reducing wait time substantially! Time to spend some money Val.

Doctor's Response

IT IS DIFFICULT TO RESPOND TO THIS BECAUSE EVERYONE CAN HAVE 'BAD DAY" SO I AM NOT SURE OF THE CONTEXT OF THIS REMARK. SECONDLY, I DO NOT OVERMEDICATE AND WOULD LOVE FOR PATIENTS TO UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS, AND TO AVOID PRESCRIPTION DRUGS WHEN POSSIBLE. AS FAR AS LISTENING GOES I GIVE EVERYONE THE TIME THAT THEY NEED AND HENCE A WAITING TIME OF 45 MIN.
