Great Doctor, just doesn't care about your time

I've been seeing Dr. Honkanen for several years because he is a great doctor, but he has zero regard for your time. Today I had a 3:30 appointment and was seen at 5:30 after being told a few more minutes numerous times. In the past I have waited up to 4 hours after my appointment time to see him. Doctor Honkanen and the staff unfortunately have no regard for your time, they will never tell you there is an extended wait as the money comes before the patient here.
