03/04/14 4 4 5 5 Dr Aroichane is awesome. Yes it is true that you can expect to wait. Seems like 15 to 30 minutes is normal for this office. I believe the wait is worth it, since she is very skilled.

03/04/14 3 1 3 4 Each time my daughter has been to Dr.Aroichane we have had to wait at least an hour. Although I think she is knowledgeable, I think she needs to start booking her appointments differently. She obviously spends a lot of time with each patient (a good thing!) but this means that her other appointments always run late. I found her informative but her bedside manner was not the best. My daughter was actually kind of scared of her.  Respond

06/02/14 2 1 2 3 I arrived at the appointment time with my 2 year old son but had to wait for nearly 2 hours. There were not even enough chairs to sit and wait. Upon inquiry, the receptionist casually mentioned that wait times are usually this long. I was hoping to hear that it was an exception and that for whatever reason the doctor was running behind. But no. In her defense she further added that on the appointment confirmation letter we send out to your family doctor we mention in it that wait times are 2 hours! I wonder if it is okay/ ethical for doctors to make their patients wait this long. No apologize or explanation whatsoever! The doctor on the other hand first apologized for LONG wait. I also complaint to the doctor about the wait time and she told me it was an exception as she had a disabled patient. Doctor was polite. However, by this time my 2 year old son was extremely cranky and did not like to be examined. In the end I took a day off from work and it went to waste.  Respond
