Patient Comments (1)
Marysville, WA |
Only was with patient less then 4 minutes, flipped through MRI so fast we could not see. Tried to ask questions completely was ignored. One doctor told us our son had a full thickness tear of ACL and this doctor said he does not see a problem.
I learned of this family's displeasure with their visit with me, contacted them and had them return for a second visit. I worked to do a better job listening at the return visit, carefully reexamining their child, re-reviewed the previous radiology images with the family and suggested a treatment course that I thought would best fit their child's condition, and they agreed.
