Great Dr., when I actually got to see him. He needs to get his business straight and decide if he still wants to be a practicing physician or not. Appointment before last I sat in waiting room for quite sometime waiting for my turn only to find out he layed out and I would not be seeing him today after taking off a day from work.....lost the pay and the day off. So at.my next scheduled appt, I find.out once again he has, according to the office, "personal" things more important than those of us who put our wellness in his hands. So now it has almost been 2 months since I have seen him, and with the new health care (i dont even have the cheap gov't crap-i pay full price)it takes at least a month to get a new dr, then once approved,who knows how long an appointment will take to get. So thanks alot delicate genious, 4 months of over priced insurance wasted and no Dr to see because you have me tied in with you as my "provider" yet refuse to actually provide.
