Patient Comments (2)

She didn't pay attention to my concerns, didn't answer my questions, and refused any follow-up from me. I was denied a conversation or an explanation about her decision to ignore my concerns and provide a diagnosis unrelated to why I was seeking treatment.

Introduced herself. Examined the issue. Explained the procedure. Talked about the result. Discussed follow up care. Provided take home information. Excellent!
