The wait time for this visit was over an hour. While, this is only my second visit with, I like how she took a lot of time with me on my first visit. However, this time Dr. Van Der Zee seemed rushed and not fully ready to see me -- i.e. she seemed somewhat distracted. She apologized for the delay, though f it happens again, I will most likely find a new electrophysiologist.

[...] 3 times I telephoned in the morning about 9 am wanting to talk with Dr. Van Der Zee. I left a message on the message machine. All three times I was contacted late in the day. The secretary said she was sorry but she doesn't answer the message machine calls until the end of the day.
