Patient Comments (1)
in Andover, MA |
2nd visit she told me to decrease med that I did not take because she told me it could increase my already high BP and that my problems were like comparing apples to oranges and that she was too busy to reschedule my appointment and would call me after she finds a day treatment program for me in my area. She also told me to change my care (primary) and I told her no that I would not change because I was treated at the healthcare office since 2011. I left the office so sick with anxiety;
