Our regular pediatrician is amazing. Dr. Varma treated me like I was an idiot. He asked if I had any questions and when I asked, he laughed at me and did not answer them. I left the visit with more questions and not feeling satisfied at all. I was very disappointed with this visit and would like to find a Dr. that will not talk down to me and one that could answer my very simple questions.

This was my first meeting with a neurologist about a chronic condition that my child is experiencing, but she was also under the care of a GI doctor. Neither doctor has explained very much about her tentative diagnosis - everything I know I've learned from researching it myself. You spend more time discussing the issues with the nurses at UPMC than the doctors, who spend about 10 minutes with the patient and do not convey enough relevant information. I have no idea about the plan of action for her condition after the test results come in, again, except for referring to internet sources. I leave every appt. with a specialist completely frustrated. And overall, it takes a ridiculously long time for follow-up visits. My child is dealing with a chronic condition - she is missing too much school and our lives are completely disrupted. Three months is a long time to wait for the next steps.
