My radiology appointment was at 11 o'clock and I showed up a couple of minutes early and they were prompt and took me back just a couple minutes before 11 o'clock. Then I sat in the waiting room for my 1115 appointment until 11:45 AM then they took me back to the exam room and I sat there for another hour before Dr Alan Davis came in to examine my foot. I think being one hour and 45 minutes late is ridiculous. I understand that some exams run over a little but I believe the Cleveland clinic is over booking the amount of patients a physician can see in an hour resulting in extremely long wait times. My time is valuable too.
