Wait forever and no apology
Self-verified patient of Dr. Henry Alvarez - Posted on June 16th, 2011
Alvarez waiting room full with patients waiting up to two hours for their appointments. Asked them if this was typical and they said unfortunately yes. When finally went in doctor graced us with his presence and did not even apologize. When I called him on it he still didn't excuse himself.After completing exam which took him about 15 minutes actual face time the office admin expalined we would need 6 additional appointments for cataract surgery. This ofice is very poorly run and it is obvious the main concern is to pack in the patients and collect $. So disappointing to see all the folks in wheelchairs sitting around for so long.
