very patient and kind physician

Reviewed on Dec 19, 2018

I waited for TWO hours for him to come into the exam room. He looked at my face and sort of apologized, saying he has a large amount of patients to see on clinic days. Does that make it alright to keep a patient waiting without notifying patient that there will be a long wait.? Absolutely NOT. I have many Doctors at Cleveland Clinic and have never been treated with so much disrespect. I was angry..
