my annual checkup. Dr Grant takes the time to discuss my concerns, go over my lab tests & point out anything that might become concern if I don't stay aware & take preventive steps. discusses all my meds & renews RX when necessary. Feel like very thorough wellness visit. unless I have any problems no need to see him till next year checkup but always stresses I should call for appointment or email if I have problems or questions.

I was surprised that the doctor didn't even touch me to examine me At all the nurse got a temperature and blood pressure and pulse but the doctor did absolutely nothing but talk to me. That surprised me. Usually a doctor will listen to your heart and lungs and at least act like they are doing an exam. What is your normal protocol for getting established with a doctor and the physical?

Dr Grant took time to explain the type of pneumonia I had while in the hospital. My lungs are now clear; he also informed me about what else was present--a fibrillation, which I stayed an extra day wearing a monitor, that did not record a problem. I felt sure my heart was acting-up, but was not informed at the hospital.
