All good!!

I want it understood that I like Dr. Krieder. The issue I have is that I don't get to really tell him about how I'm feeling regarding the reason (s) I'm there. It may be a 6-month check-up but my problems are the same. He talks, somewhat explains if I ask, types away on the computer. I feel like his attention is on it more than on me. I can't fully explain about the pain I feel or understand when I'm told "we don't know what's causing (something). Or how aging brings things on. I just want to know how to relieve my sometimes excruciating back pain, the swelling in my feet & legs, my weight gain, this cough I've had for months with no colds or anything. Why the pain, why the swelling, why the cough, you know? I don't go along with the aging suggestion. He has referred me to a pain management doctor so I am hopeful that might help me.I'm pretty sure he has no idea how badly my back pain can get & how it negatively affects day-day living for me. I know it's not apathy on his part. I believe he does care about his patients alot. I know at the end of the day he is just done & I get it but when he seems to be in a hurry & I can feel it and sort of just disappears when we are finished I leave feeling like I am just about where I was before I saw him! No real anticipation that things are going to start getting better & healing.I like him but he needs to slow down, take time, and listen better. Or stop working so late. Or I have to get to get earlier appointments although they are made contingent on my job.

Doctor Kreider has been my primary care provider for over 25 years from Slippery Rock, to Grove City, to Clarion. He's a great doctor.
