I was very disappointed that the Providence Neurological Team in the office hadn't reviewed my most recent MRI prior to my visit. For the first time I left this appointment not knowing for sure if there were significant changes in my MS or not.

Dr. Kressa Rehal is the first MS Doctor I have had that really seems to know the disease and the symptoms associated with it and has suggestions to help with it and if it is not MS related she has sent me to other providers for care.

Dr. Kresa-Reahl is professional and efficient. However, when I am with her I feel the pressure she is under to get me 'processed' and out so she can get to her next patient. I'm amazed at how well she handles it, but I don't believe she nor I should have to live with that kind of pressure.

My Dr is excellent. I would suggest speaking with the office, front desk staff [...] in order to provide him some phrasing to use on the phone in awkward situations. I interacted with this office many times throughout the day while they made a series of errors. [...] I don't mind errors. Life happens. I think it would be advisable to give the front desk/ phone workers phrasing that acknowledges patients' concern while guiding the patient toward what the office needs. [...]

I get the impression from the doctor that I am not really a person, more of an entity to be treated. I don't feel that I'm being listened to, or that my concerns are given enough attention. When issues arose with a medication prescribed, I don't feel that this practice took responsibility for the impacts on my health and make it my endocrinologists problem.
