Our visit took forever. After being asked to arrive 15 mins early, it was 30 mins past our appointment time before being taken back to a room. Briefly saw a nurse, then a resident (twice), then taken for x-rays before finally seeing the doctor. We were at our appointment for almost 2 hours and 45 mins not including arriving early!

He was patient and closely listened to us. His exam was very thorough and left us feeling very secure in the diagnosis.
