Stunned and Disappointed
A year ago I thought Dr. Kathawa was the absolute best after several months of being her patient: Today my experience was vastly different and extremely disappointing. After arriving at my appointment promptly, waiting nearly 30 minutes to see her, I decided to quietly leave and reschedule. Not a big deal. What knocked my socks off was when Dr. Kathawa discovered I was leaving, her behavior was 100% dismissive. Not even an ask "why". Nor did she acknowledge my presence. She simply asked to be directed to the next patient. Yes I was stunned. Not angry … Stunned! I could not leave quickly enough. Heart racing, anxiety on 100! Dr. Kathawa thank you for showing me your stripes before I made the grave error of making you my primary (the reason for my visit). I honestly thought you were better than this! Prospective patients, there was simply no reason for her to treat me with such callous disregard. Do you really want to take the chance of it happening to you?
