I was told this visit was to have a conference type visit that would include several health care providers including my doctor, a nutritionist, nursing staff, to have a group conference to decide what the best individualized care would be effective for my kidney stone problem. I was told that I had to make the appointment on this particular day when these group sessions take place. After waiting an hour and a half to be seen, I was seen by a first day fellow resident and then my doctor. They did answer my questions but I was not having any other problems so I had to pay $100. to be told that my test results were normal and that was it. New test were ordered but I really didn't see the point of having this visit. I was lead to believe it was going to be something different. When I ask for clarification I really wasn't given a proper explanation.

The provider was a great help in allowing me to get prescribed scan and bloodwork from a local provider - close to my home - and allowing me to mail results in since I live 4 1/2 hours from the provider's office.
