Slapped a label on me while I was being discharged from the Army. 24 years later I found a doctor who finally gave me the right diagnosis. I remember him as being cocky, rude, inattentive. Liked to talk about himself to the staff. I never want to see him again, but I would like to view him when the time comes.

Focus of first (initial) appointment was my treatment over the past 30 years, meds, etc. There was no time for dialogue as to how I was currently doing or a review as to how I was doing with the meds. The second appointment was better. Initially annoyed with him reviewing previous notes, thinking that was going to be the direction of the session. We talked about diagnoses and concerns about the dosage of one med, which he adjusted. Looking forward to my next appointment in about five weeks.

Unfortunately, the Dr has moved to another practice, & I have not yet located him but will wait to make an appt with him rather than with anyone else. He's very personable but is also an excellent and very knowledgeable Dr. Yes, I would recommend him to friends and family.
