I feel like a customer, rather than a patient. Explanations of my condition are lacking, even when pressed for information. I don't expect a prediction of the future, just some indication of what I may expect in the future. All I get is the comment, "I think we can keep you out of dialysis". Main empasis is in chemical balance which is, of course, necessary. But communications skills are lacking. Office staff seem to be working for 8 hours; not much fun or interchange among them.
