I don't have faith in the doctor. He just gives pills for any ailment I have. He doesn't tell me when I need a procedure, such as mammogram, colonoscapy, etc. I would like to find another doctor.

Most of my visit was with a new doctor that was assisting Dr. Carlson. I told the new doctor I thought I had an inguinal hernia, neither doctor looked at it. My blood test only tested for glucose and A1c. I felt that I should have had a lipid panel and PSA test based on my family history (I have the BRAC 1 gene) that I expressed concern about during my appointment.

I usually have good comments but this time I waited 30 minutes and then felt he rushed through my time. I came in for two issues. one was ignored. one acknowledged the issue but didn't provide much suggestions. once he referred me to someone he moved on with no help to get me to the appointment.
