Wait times

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Very abrupt interaction - conveyed he was annoyed about my care.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

#5, 6, 8. I wish the doctor spent more time with me discussing treatment BEFORE I was discharged from the hospital, so I knew what to do at home before my follow-up appointment.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

Would not encourage anyone to come because of the long waits

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Bishop is excellent. Have already sung his praises to others.
