I felt as though the care provider didn't seem interested in my child's problem. She prescribed him an asthma inhaler. He's never had asthma a day in his life. He still has the terrible cough that brought us there in the first place. She was patronizing. My son has now had this cough for 2 whole months. We will be seeking treatment for him elsewhere.

the Dr told me was negative the streptococcus test but never mentioned the other one that goes to the Lab, I had to take two days later again my son to the doctor and I knew if was positive the test. My son get worse until today 6 days with fever, just starting the antibiotic. I really want you to follow the patients situation and I think you should call them after the results. thank you

To me the thing that stood out was that they all said my child's name correctly. They took time to read the chart and call her by her name. The on base doctors did not do this.
