    My doctor was excellent. Procedure went very smoothly.The admitting scheduling was horrendous. I arrived at the requested time (12:15) only to have to wait almost 2 hours before being called back. This was partially due to a delay with the room, but it was also because I was requested to arrive an hour before I was reasonably expected to go to preop. I assume this is so I can go early if they are running ahead of schedule, but that is horribly disrespectful of my time. It would be much better if there was open communication about the scheduling so I don't waste so much time in a waiting room.
