Poor Service and Unhygienic

The most unhygienic doctors office I have ever seen! There is a huge dog that sheds in the waiting room with heaps of hair all over the carpet. After waiting close to 2hrs to see the doctor I finally had to leave because my son's eyes were having an allergic reaction to all the dog hair!! This in a dermatologist office!
