My 30 minute consultation felt rushed and superficial. It seems inadequate to develop an effective treatment plan. I hopeI am wrong about this.

Excellent Doctor! I've had many in the past & I can tell a very good one, when I see them! He'shighly intelligent, & even personable without invading ones privacy or personal boundaries. He's nice, pleasant, & has a positive type of friendly personality. His smile is comforting, too! He's very knowledgable about medications, dosages, & their side-effects. He doesn't over-prescribe, which is very important to me, since so many doctors these days in America, want to oversell drugs, due to pharmaceutical lobbying & incentives. I've now, had 2 appt's with him & I think "he's a keeper!" ;)
