it seemed rushed when the dr came. She explained what she felt, but she didnt sit down with me. she gave me a medication that ive had before. I felt my.primary care dr could have prescribed the medication. i had a hard time getting the appt anyway. So for the amount of time that i had with the dr was not sufficient. Calling back if i have a new area, is probably going to be more effort on my part.
