Short visit, so it would be hard to be exceptionally good or bad. I am pleased with the care, experience, and advice. I had to wait about 45 minutes after my scheduled time, which was frustrating. But other visits have not involved significant wait times, so I don\'t see it as a chronic problem based on this experience. Provided delay doesn\'t become habitual, I\'ll continue to chalk it up to a likely emergency or urgent situation with another patient and not consider it a problem.
