WAited for 4 1/2 hours before being seen. Tried to find someone in hall but no one was even available to ask where Dr. Halpern was. She had emer. surgery but NO ONE ever told me & I sat on the room waiting. She explained her delay after finally seeing me but someone should have told me 10:00 appt. Finally seen @ 2:30.
