Though competent and thorough I was put off by the provider explaining he did not want to take the time to email with me regarding test results as it took too much time for him thus forcing me to take time from work for $20 copay office visit. that would be more of a time management issue and put the patient, me, feeling as if I am there for the providers neefs, not mine
