(KSL News) -- A Las Vegas man has successfully sued his doctor for making him wait too long in his office.

The man says he had an appointment with his doctor to treat a back injury. But when he got there, the doctor was out meeting with patients at four different hospitals. And instead of rescheduling, the man decided to wait. After four hours he finally left.

A court ordered the doctor to pay a 250-dollar fine. The man says the ruling proves his time is just as valuable as the doctor's.
