Dr. Gopalum and I have been a "team" for several years, taking care of my 92-year-old mom who has dementia and a variety of age-related conditions. We work well together. I appreciate that she listens to my concerns and then, applying her own knowledge and experience, she makes a recommendation and we work out a care plan. So far that has worked very well. Dr. Gopalum\'s warm and encouraging manner allows her to ask Mom questions and get her cooperation when needed.

Since I became I patient at BSW I have noticed that quite a few doctors spend more time interacting with the computer than with me. I have noticed that a few doctors have assistants who do this task and that leaves the doctor more one on one time with me.
