    Never any problems with doctor

  • Aug 17, 2021

    This was only the second time I met with the doctor. The first time I met with her was more of an urgent situation and I felt very listened to. This time after I had done some tests and there was no information that was really pointing to any problems, which was fine, I still had general questions about the information from the tests and it felt kind of dismissive talking with the doctor. Almost like she was being rushed through the appointment. I understand there is a lot of pressure on doctors to meet with patients every 15 minutes but this was not a very positive experience for me unfortunately.
