He didn't seem to review my records. He missed key information that would have assisted in a diagnosis. He seems to think he knows everything when he didn't have a clue.

Very nice thorough doctor. But what is so shocking and rude are his wait times. He thinks nothing if have you spend 2-3 hours waiting. Why his office does not schedule him better I find so maddening. My time is important and if I have an 8 am appt 10am or even 11 am is not ok. Dr mizen should learn to respect others time like he I am sure expects people do for him.
