[...] the Nurse Practitioner was excellent. she was very knowledgeable, explained in detail, answered all my questions and seemed genuinely concerned. She could not have been nicer. The MD was dismissive, judge mental and questioned why I was even there. The only reason I will continue to see this physician is because he came highly recommended by a physician that is well respected.

I waited 2 hours and 8 minutes after my appointment time before I saw the doctor. I will never wait this long again. This is why I would hesitate to recommend this doctor to anyone. He's a very good doctor but there are many very good doctors - none should keep a patient waiting more than two hours!! if there were emergencies or other reasons for the lateness I should have been notified of such, just making me wait was extremely rude.
