I was taken in early about 1 1/2 hours ahead of appointment time to answer the nurse's question on my medical history but I sat in the room with 2 friends for over 3 hours before I got to see Dr. Charles. No one ever came in to tell us what the delay was.

My one compliant has to do with the amount of time you have to wait to see some doctors. This was true for Dr. Charles. However, I am sure if it was an emergency, Dr. Charles would have found time. I was willing to wait the ~90 days as the care provided by Dr. Charles has always been the best. I do appreciate Dr. Charles. I have recommended him to others who have shared with me the fact they too found him to be caring, informative, and helpful. My hat off to Dr. Charles!!!
