I like him. I feel like he doesn’t quite understand me yet. I hope we get to know each other better. I think he doesn’t quite understand where I’m coming from when t come to the medication I feel I need. I know what I body can handle and I feel like he’s not quite understanding that yet. I am someone who studies what I put in my body before I put it in me. If I feel it’s not right for me. I won’t take it. I watch everything that goes in my body and exercise to stay healthy. I just have anxiety. And can’t handle any anti depressant. They don’t work with my body/mind. I like the doctor and am willing to work with him if he understands where I’m coming from! Thank you
First time seeing this doctor, good first opinion. Nice office.
I must say that I did not appreciate waiting 15 minutes past my appointment time, and then only getting 15 minutes with the doctor. I felt that I had to rush to explain all of my symptoms. I do think that he understood the problem and made a correct diagnosis, but I'm not a doctor myself, so again, it felt rushed. The doctor and his staff were pleasant, though. I will continue to see him.
My visit today was excellent & always is. My Dr. is very imforative, understanding & caring. he listens to my concerns & is always very helpful & knowledgeable. He treats me as a person & not just a patient. Great visit!!!!
I thought it was great! Meds are working & feel much better than I was feeling before
