Consistently VERY Long Wait

The shortest wait I had for an appointment with Dr. Paoness a was an hour, and more than once had to wait for two hours. There is no forewarning from staff that he is running behind.. Their only comment was they are sure his patients understand. Well, I DON'T understand. Although his treatment of my problem was fine, I will seek out someone who is more organized and/or considerate of my time in the future.
