I feel that after I waited for 3 months for this appointment it was very rushed. I don't feel that I got very good explanations on what I was being seen for and why they don't handle them, but I would need to go see another physician for them to be addressed. They were all very nice, but I did not even have time to think of what questions I had for follow up of my issues that I was being seen for.
