The Waiting time is HORRiBLE !!

Dr.Essien is an excellent doctor, hands down. I just don't understand why his office schedules appointments 2 hours before he gets in, and on top of that, they schedule 10 ppl around the same time ! I had a 10am appt oneday and didn't get seen til a quarter to 2. I was extrememly displeased. This office also lost my insurance information, claiming I never gave it to them..I actually did like 3 times. I plan on getting a paper to have my med records released and finding a more organized and professional doctor's office
