Dr. Chu explained everything so that I was aware of the problem and that the treatment she provided at that time may or may not help the pain that I am having, so I my need to come back for a different Therapeutic Modality

She always appears to be in a rush to get in and out of the room. Consequently, I feel that I need to respond very quickly and probably shorten what I would like to say as she needs to move on to the next patient.

After being instructed to fill out and submit paperwork electronically before seeing the Dr, there was still paperwork to be filled out. I wish Dr Chu would have informed me a little more about the medical problem I have. Such as why it happened and what to do in order to try to prevent it from happening again.
