Dr. Cha seems very competent. She does review your chart thoroughly and explains the results of blood tests and a health plan going forward. My only concern is about the hands on examinations that once were commonplace among all visits. Would have thought that listening to the heart and lungs of a senior would have been a given at any appointment, just as taking the temperature and blood pressure are. Apparently, now, perhaps due to insurance restrictions, these things seem to only be done if you ask ahead of time. It doesn't sound like very proactive care.

After tests were done (with nothing conclusive), I got a 'take an aspirin and call us for another appointment' response. I really don't think anyone really cares whether this is a life-threatening problem or not. Why not suggest another resouce/specialist?

Dr. Cha always reviews notes from my previous visit, which I appreciate. I feel she could be more sensitive in dealing with patients who have trauma [...], although I appreciate it's difficult when you have a tight schedule and lots of patients. However it can add to the stress when your physician appears dismissive or annoyed that physical exams are difficult for the patient. Aside from a few comments (over several visits) in which I perceived her frustration in dealing with me, physically she's very respectful of people's bodies and she also provided me the option of going longer between physical exams to help ease the stress. Overall I'm very appreciative of her care. I just think there are a few times where a little more sensitivity would be appreciated.
