I do have to say putting us in a room were we sit for 1 hour for a doctor to come is ridiculous it's like sitting in jail! Don't put us in there to sit let us sit in the waiting room.

Dr Caron saved my life. I went to 5 other doctors before I got a definite answer to my problem. I could have ended up paralyzed if I hadn't had the surgery. I insisted on getting an MRI from previous doctors which confirmed that I had a problem. As a retired Nurse, I am glad that I was persistent in getting the right answers to my problem. I am very grateful to not only Dr Caron but also to his PA [...] for explaining everything to me and for recognizing my problem.They are top notch medical professionals. I would recommend them to everyone.

I waited over an hour for doctor after I explained I couldn't wait long as I had my grandson with me. *Dr Caron stated he was sorry that he was late that NO ONE told him I was there. Really?!! Really?!! After I told nurse my situation. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.
