My only concern was that the doctor spent too much time (in my estimation) looking at the computer screen and not at me. It was a cancer diagnosis, which is scary. I realize computers are a major tool for medical personnel, but if a physician is telling me I need surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid, I want to think the doctor is talking to ME. In terms of medical skill and knowledge, I thought the doctor was excellent and I feel reassured she will take good care of me. But when sharing information that may be routine to her, but is anything but routine to the patient, please look at said patient when delivering the news.
