Dr. Singh and his staff have a good system. There were some new eye health challenges which warranted extra testing. This extra testing provided answers and of course created extra testing. I have the viewpoint that I am coming to the Clinic with a unique health challenge and am WILLING to wait to see the best eye oncologist; therefore, I have NO complaints on wait time. This visit took us over 4 hours, which normally is only 2 - and we got answers, immediate treatment, and then followup care plan.

The wait time at the doctors office was over two hours. Once we first checked in we waited about 10mins, took us to back tech did initial check in then sent us downstairs for pictures. Very reasonable wait times. Went back to area for doctor gave the lady our folder. That's when it went downhill we wanted about 45 mind there finally get taken back and waited over a hour. We did voice our concern and that we were the 0945 appointment, they apologized but we continued to wait. I believe the "next in line" method they are using failed big time for us. We walked out of Cole at 1245. :(
