Absolutely Insane - AVOID

Had to make another appointment after a misdiagnosis. Scheduling is absolutely horrible. Had a 9:30 appointment and still hadn't been seen by 10:50. Waited in the waiting room for over an hour and then was called back at 10:30. I was told the doctor would be "right in" and after waiting for another 15 minutes I went to the front and asked why. When finally seen, I was written another prescription for a cough medicine which is a controlled substance. The pharmacy wouldn't fill it because (after fighting with them) they called a prescription in for me on Monday. Didn't leave the office until after 11:00. Too bad my insurance doesn't cover my old doctor because I'm definitely not coming back here.

Dr.Summers NEVER has same day appointments available. Usually the following week. This time I was offered an appointment with the NURSE. That wasn't offered before. He doesn't spend much time with patient either. He seems very competent just hard to get in.
