Patient Comments (1)
in Puyallup, WA |
He starts out talking with you and understanding exactly what is bothering you. Then he educates about the issues you may or may not have. He explains what choices there are and helps you make a decision on how to proceed. The thing I like most is when you leave you know exactly what is happening and written material on what was talked about and what you are to do is provided. Any prescriptions are called in and he welcomes questions by phone or by My Chart. I wouldn't suggest changing anything.
