I arrived at 1:05; my appointment was for 1:15. My entire visit lasted until 3:30[please check record as I am uncertain]. When I finally met the doctor I saw him for less than Five minutes[estimated] and was told that he was the wrong person; I should see a dermatologist. I asked for a recommendation but he replied that any one would do.
