I like this provider and this clinic. However, I want to know that what I have to say, my feelings and opinions concerning my health are important enough that I am given time to explain or say something without it being dismissed in such a way that I am left feeling bad for asking for something or saying something.

My appointment was at 7:30 AM and I was asked to be there at 7:15. By 7:45 I was still not seen and flagged down a person who was calling in another patient. I later learned that I had never been checked in by the receptionist; thus my 1/2 hour appointment began late and I was not given the full time for this annual well exam. This has never happened before [...]. Dr. Nayak and his assistant were most apologetic, but it impacted their schedule, too.

I like my doctor very much, but I feel he is not listening to me because he is entering information in the computer during the entire visit. He seems to be in a hurry and I leave feeling I dissatisfied with the visit. I don't get my questions fully answered. I need him to sit facing me and to listen to my questions as though they matter. [...] I always log onto 'My Chart' and send him a question. I get a response within the next day or two and it is usually most satisfactory.
