How long will I wait to see a doctor?

Most visits take a relatively short period of time. We appreciate your patience and pledge to provide prompt, effective and professional care.

Since we don’t take appointments, it’s difficult to predict how long you will have to wait to be seen by a doctor. Although we treat patients on a first-come, first-served basis, patients with severe breathing problems, who are bleeding or who may have life-threatening medical conditions will be seen first.
