The only problem was the dr was running late due to an earlier procedure going over. When I was in the office he saw me promptly and spent time listening and answering my questions.

I was very disappointed after my doctors visit. I waited a long time past my appointment time. Atleast 45 minutes and then the doctor only spent a few minutes with me. The doctor was very friendly, but he didn't give mea chance to ask questions and I felt rushed. He wants me to have a diagnostic proedure done and didn't give me a chance to ask about other options until we were in the hallway.
