I was not happy with visit. The doctor acted as if he didn't have time for me. When I tried to ask questions or tell him what my diet was, I was instructed to wait until the end, but after he finished he darted out of the room. With him telling me that I was "Pre-diabetic" and that he specialized in this, I was given a pen and told to write down a laundry list of foods I should eat, as he hurriedly rattled off, seemingly frustrated when I asked questions for better understanding. I felt if he specialized in this, why am I writing all this and why no prewritten literature.

The doctor is great but they didn't review my ZocDoc info before I came. Ended wasting my time because they couldn't prescribe the medication I shared I was coming in to refill after moving from another state. Had my info been reviewed, this could have been avoided. Could be just a staff issue
