I wanted to see the Doctor because of my peripheral edema that was the worst pitting edema I ever had. He was standing up at his computer monitor and when I was trying to show him my legs and feet, he look down at them 10 feet away but didn't touch them. I think I'll look for a new Doctor! I lost confidence in him. !!!
