From the 3 hr appt ("sorry, running late!") to a promise that Dr. Oster would call (she didn't), to being read the wrong test results by the receptionist, to the NP calling back to tell me all my visit notes were erased ("new software - what were the symptoms again?") to ultimately misdiagnosing a hormonal and complex thyroid issue with "you're fine. An Endocrinioglist would be a moot point. But if you're still feeling tired, we're happy to write a script for Prozac." Deplorable & irresponsible
