while there is no cure for my particular malady, she immediately dove into finding the source and into all the "cures" that I saw in my research. She is a good listener - a very good trait from this side. I was told that there was a peer review process. I think that should get wider dissemination to patients so we can get additional confirmation that everything possible is being done.

This was the only time I have had a wait problem. I was asked to come in earlier and ended up being seen at the original time. Perhaps because of this, I suspect there was not sufficient time to review my chart before seeing me. I like my Dr. and these comments are of a relatively trivial nature.
