While I was treated with respect, and all my questions were answered, and my concerns addressed intelligently, I had the underlying feeling, in every stage of this appointment from scheduling, through PA visit, through doctor visit, that I was sitting through a sales pitch. I don't know if they have some kind of quota to push, but it was kind of like attending one of those vacation seminars.
