This was my second appointment. I never got to see the doctor on the first appointment. I was 15 minutes late. It was a rainy day and traffic everywhere was backed up. I come from quite a distance to the city. On my rescheduled visit, I actually met the doctor and really, really liked her thoroughness and her manor. She was quite knowledgeable about my health history. I have a follow-up appointment in three months.
