    I have always felt rushed, unheard and mostly ignored by Dr's most of my life. I have had basically solid health, for that I am greatful, but because of that when I do have issues and symptoms I think my chart is not so concerning. "That's just aging/having a family/job"... Dr Setoodeh is kind,never rushed, sits and looks you in the eye and listens. Her ability to keep searching AND finding the root cause of the symptoms is unlike anyone else I have encountered in my Dr going life.

    She has questionable ethics. Her reports say that she did things she didn't do. And one diagnosis said that I have Raynauds. I have absolutely NO SYMPTOMS of Raynauds. She said she examined me for it but she did NOTHING. She said she counseled me on care of it and gave me a handout -- which she did not do. She never even said the WORD Raynauds to me. I read it on line on MyChart. I asked her why she said I had it. She paused to think up a lie. She said my hand was cold.I was nervous.
