I arrived at 8:15 to 8:20 am, I was kept waiting for nearly an hour. I was not checked in properly, which resulted showing me as a no show. After, hearing two patients called for Dr. Flamm before me, I went back to the checkin desk and finally was brought back in the que. Dr. Flamm and his assistance were both extremely apologetic and spent time with me and gave me a thought and thorough exam and discussion regarding my reason for the follow up. Plus calming me down in a very professional and empathetic manner.
