Waited over an hour and twenty minutes to see him, and when he finally came in I felt like the whole thing was so rushed... He barely looked at me, didn't ask me any questions, wrote some medications down and sentme along. I had to keep stopping him to ask questions and state my concerns. I left not really knowing how much of which medicines to take, and when to take them, since it was all verbal and nothing was written down. Overall pretty disappointed. Have another appointment next month.
