I had a 1 p.m. appointment. I arrived at the appointed time. There were two check-in stations. Both of the women sitting behind the check-in stations were busy working on their computers. They did not look up to acknowledge that there were people waiting for them. They just continued with their computer work. After standing there at least five minutes one of them finally acknowledged I was there and got me checked in. By this time there was a line of people behind me. Either streamline your check in, or get more check in people. This isn't the first time the check-in has been the real bottleneck. Once we were finally checked in, we were called back fairly quickly and the rest of the appointment was efficient.
