This was a first visit, and I found staff and medical professional did an excellent job getting my diagnosis and treatment plan put together, from both a technical and "human" standpoint. The 4-star on question 1 only indicates that we are at the start of the doctor/patient journey - and recommendations should be saved for the outcome.
