I was late about 40 minutes from my appointment today and because I received the wrong directions. When I arrived at the reception, the registered nurse checked me in because my doctor offered this late visit. Thanks to Dr. Granger a lot- I thought he could have canceled my appointment, but instead of that, he was nice and I didn't see him angry or complain. I appreciated his ethical decision making on my late visit today a lot! That was really the true value of a good doctor.
