Doctor was almost an hour behind schedule. When I checked in at roughly 1:40pm for my 2:00 appointment, no one mentioned that he was running late. Had to check the board and then ask at the registration desk. In addition, living in Stuart, FL (roughly a 90 minute ride to Weston), maybe someone could have notified us in advance of the situation.

Although I rated a few in the fair category, I do understand that some patience need time to discuss with their doctor serious conditions. I don't think visits with certain situations should be treated like a fast food operation. I appreciate the time Dr. Shrivastava spends with my wife and me. Its very reassuring. So I understand waiting for my turn because our Dr. is very caring.

The only issue i have with Dr Shrivastava's office is the amount of time spent in the lobby waiting room , waiting to see him, alway, always, very, very late !! Every time , not once in a while all the time. not sure how this can be corrected. My last visit was 1 hour of my own time !! On one of my appointments the delay was so long they gave me a meal voucher for the cafeteria! I believe delay was approx 4 hours, I did a survey like this and never heard a word from anyone!! This is my time which is valuable to me and hate wasting it sitting to see a Doctor which is always late , wish something could be done to correct this matter, I dread my appointments due to this reason. As far as the Doctor is concerned he is a great guy and Doctor , it's the wait to see him that is making me consider a new Doctor.
