wait time was extremely too long. I wasn't seen until over an hour after my appointment time

October 19, 2019 7:00 PM

There is a relatively new nurse and he is very pleasant and gets you prepared to see the doctor. Dr, Byas always comes in with a pleasant attitude and asks first all how I'm doing and if there are any problems. She examines me thoroughly and reminds me about my flu and pneumonia shots, which I was given by the nurse. She asked about my knee pain and suggested a new Ortho group because I was not pleased with the previous doctor, she wrote my referrals and I was on my way. My wait time was nominal.
