I got to my appointment early afternoon, registered at the desk and told to sit in waiting area. Waited for 1 hour and nothing. Noticed patients after my arrival were called in, so I went to the desk and inquired as to why. Gave my name and she couldn't even find my file. After half an hour, when I inquired again, I was told some other patient stood up when my name was called and they got my patient file. The nurse calling the names had strong accent, seemed to me they couldn't pronounce the names properly and even then, not very clearly at all. They eventually located my file, I had my vision test and told to wait for the doctor. Three hours passed and still nothing. I again went to desk and they said I was next to see the doctor. Another hour passed and all patients that came way after my appointment time, had come and gone. So I just left, obviously could not hang around any longer as it was obvious to me that my patient file was in limbo. I had wasted a whole afternoon with no results.
As a result, I did not see the eye specialist and I still have my eye problem.
