Dr. Turner used several racial micro- aggressions during our session in regards to my knowledge of allergies, medical testing already preformed, my insurance carrier and type, etc. In addition to talking over me while explaining prior medical testing and diagnoses relevant to current situation and the validity of my statement in regards to severe allergens and symptoms from exposure to allergens. Did not explain why secondary testing was medically necessary with (+) in office reaction.

Dr. Turner kept trying to walk out before I was done asking my few questions. I had a major allergic reaction last weekend and she said I may never know what caused it and didn't seem to be paying attention to my concerns. Then a staff member said they didn't know I had new insurance even after I put it on the sign in form and they scanned my new card. They also put the wrong code on my lab Corp form so I had to contact them again.and wait for them to fax a new one. Do not recommend!
