I was scheduled at 1:00 for a colonoscopy, I’m still waiting with a room full of patients, the staff is rude and unprofessional. The office knew hours ago that the DR was running behind and didn’t have the decency to call with a heads up. This office needs to be ran with a little more efficiency and empathy for its patients. I will never use or recommend this office again.
