I asked a question related to medication prescribed by this Dr, but was cut off before I could complete the question, and given a lot of incorrect information, not at all based on her specialty. I attempted to reframe the question with regards to the medication, got a quick non-answer, and then she proceeded to continue on her original answer to the question. She missed many queues where I provided information supporting my position based on medical issues she was not aware of, b/c they were outside of her purview, and outright contradicted what her colleague, my primary Dr, has advised. Overall, a very uncomfortable visit.
