Despite waiting for at least an hour after my appointment time, I saw the doctor for 5 minutes. His junior doctor took my symptoms and had excellent bedside manner, but Dr Sorrentino seemed rather dismissive of my health concerns and hasn’tresponded for 2 weeks in the MyChart system about my concerns. I felt frustrated and ignored, because I waited for hours to be told to make another appointment for the echocardiogram for which I was originally referred. Since my symptoms are heavily interfering with my daily life, this waiting game is extremely stressful.
