My son required an orthopaedic surgeon after a sports injury. As it was an emergency, we were seen by the doctor on call. I have no complaints with the surgical part, but the follow up visits were a nightmare. In each of the 4 follow-ups, we were forced to wait for well over an hour before being seen by even a nurse. It didn't matter what time the appointment was either! We were supposed to be one of his first patients and we still waited for 1 hour and 48 minutes! Don't think of complaining. When I did, the office manager informed me that it was her schedule and if I didn't like it, I could find a different doctor. The last appointment was a nightmare. An older gentleman asked the receptionist how much longer the wait would be. She told him to sit down. Moments later the office manager came out and berated him in front of a packed waiting room. I decided to tell the surgeon about my experience. Imagine my shock when his reply was, "People should get a life. I'm a busy man". If you have an emergency, you might be forced to see these people, but if you have a choice, RUN!! Find a more caring and compassionate doctor. Of course, if you find an an IRS audit enjoyable, this might be the place for you.

PROS: Good surgeon
CONS: Horrible disposition, extremely long waits and staff from the IRS!
