I came to this doctor for a second opinion ona ongoing kidney issue that my now ex urologist did not seem to show care or compassion about but what is very important to me. This provider is now #1 in my opinion and I feel I am now in the best possible care.

After the visit I was to mail the CD of the kidney scan and call to verify that I sent it. I put my name on the jacket of the CD to ensure that they new it was mine and called also to verify that they got it. No call to verify they got it. No call from the Dr. to tell me his thoughts. I am still in pain.
