This visit was a referral for specialty care by my PCP. I was pleased with the care received, and look forward to positive treatment results.

I want another opinion. Two days after my visit, the right side of my cheek is still swollen, and I have a nerve pain. If this is melanoma, was it correct to freeze it a second time? I feel, the physician used the freeze in excess.

I really enjoyed my visit with this provider. he took the time to listen and to explain things in a way I could understand. I left with no confusion at all about what my medical condition was and the course of treatment we were going to pursue.

I feel as though the provider did not spend enough time in the room. He popped in for at least 2 minutes at the end of my visit, looked at my scalp and then agreed with student who was scribing. I understand the use of extenders during MD appointments as my office utilizes them as well, but I still feel as though the MD should spend the same amount of time with me as the extender. I feel this way about my personal appointments as well as the appointments for the patients in my office. Both providers during my appointment were very knowledgably and very polite I just think for future patients who do not understand the use of having an extender and MD, they will prefer for the provider to spend some additional time in the room as well.

Appointment was quick and easy, however the provider clearly did not want to be at work or care about my appointment. He seemed annoyed and only really spoke to his resident instead of speaking directly to me. In the end, the provider took care of my needs efficiently so I am satisfied.
