Patient Reviews (1)
Bellevue, WA |
In follow-up appointment, she had not reviewed the material from previous appointment. Did not plan to run needed follow-up test until I pushed for it. Thought I was there for something other than the follow-up she scheduled. Did not remember some of the discussion from previous appointment (that was in her notes) until I reminded her, then she read her notes and agreed. At times ignored patient in room (with mild dementia) and directed all conversation to relative, leaving patient ignored.
