No matter when I go, I always wait a long time. Try to get the first appointment of the day, but then I wait 30 minutes for the staff to straggle in and get their coffee and socialize and whatever else they do. If I go later, the wait time increases, which makes it hard for those of us who are trying to get in a quick check-up and get to work. Recently moved to area and am already looking for another doctor because I'm tired of being referred to a specialist for every single little problem that my former family doctor somehow managed to keep under good control for years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
