Physician was very knowledgeable but assumed so much without looking or requesting any further information. Perhaps it would be best if he feels that dietary information and needs are for his dietician to resolve to see the dietician prior to the physician appointment so that these assumptions can be removed. Even though I am hopeful for the correct results, we have no idea if we are taking the correct route because he has no idea if I am following a correct or reasonable dietary program and was not willing to go into that during this appointment. The psych eval seems reasonable to be concurrent but perhaps should also be done prior to physician scheduling so that he can see the whole picture at once rather than "piece meal".
