when I first came in, I was not happy that she sat at the computer the entire time, and barely even looked at me. Just asked questions, and typed in the answers. I also felt a little insulted that she called me obese. She has been getting nicer with each visit, and a little friendlier each time. I don\'t feel that she really takes the time to get to know me.
