Unprofessional and unethical practice

The other reviews are probably from close friends of Dr. Herndon, because my experience with his quality of patient care has been extremely poor. He relies 99% on the assessment of his interns when seeing patients. The average time he spends, in my case, was less than 5 minutes, making his decisions based solely on what his interns diagnosed. In some cases, he wasn't even in the office and yet his office made appointments under his name. Unethical in my estimation, but that is how I guess it works at his office and is considered business as usual. A wait time of 2-4 hours is also not uncommon only to find out that he wouldn't even make the final assessment at times as he had left.
