The PHYsician Assistant sat at computer most of the appt. and did not make appropriate examination.

This is the first time I have seen a P.A. - and I will ask for Heather next time I need care. She was polite and concerned. The use of computers in the exam rooms makes it difficult for the provider to make continued eye contact with me and makes for an emotional barrier.

My only dissatisfaction came from the appointment that was made to help diagnose my problem. I was in a lot of pain and the appointment for the ultrasound is two weeks away. I was not given any suggestions for pain management or dietary restrictions to try to help with the pain.
