very good

July 18, 2016

During my visit, I asked about whether or not I had already been tested for something that may be causing the problem I was there for (I would have been tested about 8 months ago and at a time when I received many different blood tests, so I wasn't 100% sure), and Dr. Atwood wasn't sure either so he checked my records (this was fine for him not to be 100% sure either). However, when he looked and saw I was tested, he said he never looked at the results and that it could be contributing to the problem, which seemed pretty incredulous to me that I have been experiencing this problem since last October, and a test I received last October pointed to a potential cause, but my doctor "never looked at the results." As a result, I had more tests done after that to rule other things out that maybe weren't necessary. Dr. Atwood is a nice doctor, but this seemed pretty unacceptable.
