She was a resident when I saw her. Maybe that was why she was not able to help me at the time. I had to see someone else who was able to help me.
I apologize for the delayed response to your review, I just learned of it today. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this important feedback with us. We take all patient concerns seriously and use the information to improve our care. We will bring your review to the attention of our leadership team. -Andrew
