My report time was 9:15. We arrived about 9:00, and were called back soon after. The girl said "I am so glad you\'re early, we\'ll be ahead of schedule." She did all of the testing, etc. and upon leaving the room at 9:30 said the doctor would be in shortly. We waited until 10:00, and my wife opened the door to see if she could see anyone to ask why the delay. While she was standing there the doctor walked down the hall. He asked if he could help her, and she told him he could see her husband, and he said he\'d be in in a few minutes, but to close the door because that was the hospital rule. He came in in about 5 minutes, but never offered an explanation for the delay. The delay has happened 2 years in a row when I was the patient. It\'s never happened to my wife, and she goes every year also. I don\'t know if someone is not informing the doctor that we are ready in the room or what\'s going on.

the wait time is always very long. I was taken back to the room at my appointment time. medical assistant checked my vision, checked the pressure in my eyes, and dilated my eyes within 15 minutes. I then waited another 50 minutes until the doctor came in who only spent 10 minutes with me having prescription in hand. The only other thing he did was look at the back of my eyes. There has to be a more efficient way of processing patients for regular eye appointments. I always have to wait at minimum 45 minutes for the doctor to come in. it is a waste of my time when he is really only coming in to give me the signed prescription. I dread having to make my vision appointment each year and would actually go somewhere else if I could get the special eye scans I need each year due to medication I take. the rest of my family already go to other vision centers for their yearly vision tests.
