Only complaint is both good and bad. Dr S spends the time needed with his patients- which he should, he’s an oncologist and cancer patients’ needs are greater than a normal patient. Therefore he is always late to his appointments - the answer isn’t that he spends less time with us, it’s that appointment times should be longer.
