My wait time was unacceptable. i arrived 15 minutes prior to my appointment. I waited in the reception area for more than 34 minutes before I was called in. I was not given any updates or reason of the delay. I feel if my time was not valued as a patient. My time is as valuable as the provider. If I have to pay because I'm late or missed my appointment, I feel I should be compensated when the provider is late. At least I should be communicated when there's a delay.
No Rating Given
Dr. Salti and his team have been great - They very much understand the difficulty of a cancer diagnosis - and respect my questions. I highly recommend anyone to see him (though, hope I never have to go back for another cancer operation! :))
