Dr. Bhat asked me how I was doing with taking Tamoxifen at my appointment on 9.23.19, and I reminded her that I had stopped taking it after contacting her office. She didn't remember, so I asked her to look back at MyChart to review the communication exchange. She did find it and them remembered that I had stopped taking it 7 months prior. It is not reassuring when your doctor does not remember quite a big event in a patient's care. At the least, there could be a more thorough review of the patient care prior to seeing them.

Dr. Bhat never made me feel that she was rushing or rushing me, even though I know she was very busy. Everyone treated me with compassion and I felt they were truly concerned about my health issues.
