Patient Comments (1)
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
I established w/Dr. Blue after mvg to the MB area - I am overweight, over 60 w/a history of high chol. (provided in history) AND told her my A1c's were climbing. Dr. Blue didn't order either test. I told her nurse ( always rude) on 2nd visit. 9 months later, feeling very ill, I got an appt. She grimaced when she saw my list of things to discuss and talked over me but I insisted on an A1c and a lipid. I don't need a consult. I'm an RN. I need meds! Call them in and don't waste my time!
