Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

My visit was very rushed - the MA and the Dr. seemed like they need to hurry through and I had to ask for the Dr. to return to the room for further questions. Once this happened, I felt like I got better answers. Maybe I was amiss on my expectation that I was getting a physical when it was considered a routine visit time? Not sure on that.

It was nice to be able to get in to see MD within two days of calling for an appointment since it was for a potential medical issue and not just a regular exam. Felt the appointment was rushed; not time for me to make sure all of my questions were answered. MD didn't ask if I had any other questions; just told me what she tests she was ordering and left the room.

I realize that this is only a perception, and therefore my filter, but I felt like just another face for the doctor to see on the date of my appointment. I was a new patient for her, having recently moved to the area, so I realize that I was unfamiliar, but it showed, and there wasn't much interest shown in getting to know me any better as a person, much less a patient. Again, I apologize as I don't want to sound a defeatist, and I'm certain that with time we'll get to know each other better.
