...I waited about 45 min before I had to say something to the receptionist. She checked with the dr., and said I was next then she said after someone else. I had to reschedule as it would make me late for work that day. The rescheduled appt ... was more on time.

Dr Kandel is very attentive, compassionate, treats me with great respect and always makes me feel comfortable. Even though I usually only see her once a year, I feel like she remembers me each time. I also really enjoy interacting with her nurse...
