Dr. Haynes is an excellent physician. You know that already. One thing that has impressed the past 18 years or so he has been my doctor is just not his clinical skills, but his people skills. Listening isnalways emohasized, and He is a great listener. But has anyone mentioned that he asks the best questions? He helps the patient key in and focus on complex issues issues to get the core issues, symptoms, etc. That is a wonderful skill, as patients and their families navigate complex illnesses and situations. Kudos to Dr. Haynes for his questions!

Office delays happen. Some people/patients have unforeseen needs/problems and require more time. A heads-up would have been nice. From the staff - dr. was busy with patients.
