NCP Stern understood the reason I was there (THRIVE) and explained what to expect after the visit. He also delayed his diagnosis until my follow-up visit two weeks from the visit. He also took the time to walk me to the hallway that lead to the final destination (checkout desk) instead of just giving directions.

Provider was great. Said I need an ultrasound however to complete diagnosis, and should get that in next 24 to 48 hours. Sent me to schedule that. First available appointment is a week out! So now I'm stuck in limbo with a potentially torn/ruptured achilles tendon, and can't move forward with any kind of treatment for a week because the ultrasound team is booked up. I need help sooner than a week, but not sure how to proceed.
