There are still questions that I have regarding the device and the way it functions. While I am grateful for the skills of this provider, at this visit I felt as though I got abbreviated answers that were somewhat adequate but not thorough. Also, I felt as though the computer report he was working upon was more important than genuine communication with me, the patient, and that my questions were received as unimportant and, as a result, discouraged. I ask that doctors remember that while they may deal with these matters every day, for patients this is not a "ho-hum, bring on the next case" scenario. This is new to most of us and deserves focused attention upon the questions that we, the patients, may have.
