The provider informed me within the first few moments that she was running behind. She did not shake my hand and did not ask me to explain why I was there. Instead, she read to me the impressions of my PM&R doctor. I was immediately turned off by that. She talked very quickly as if she were trying to rush things along. And even thought I understood her explanation for why she could do anything for me, she came across as insensitive. I felt that she has just checking the box and didn\'t care to hear what I had to say. The only time I spoke was to answer the many questions that she was rattling off. By the end of the appointment I was crying and feeling hopeless to have my issues resolved. This doctor needs sensitivity training. I would not refer her to any of my family or friends.

I think unnecessary appointments are made to specialists of things that could be handled by a primary care provider. I informed my primary care I had muscle pain and she sent me to a dr that looks at joint pain.

I was allowed to ask 1 question. Her response was rude and dismissive. After she finished answering my question, she practically yelled at me for being late, even though I arrived only 5 minutes after the check in time. She said I was causing her to get behind and her other patients to wait. The appointment left me very discouraged and in tears. I felt attacked and like I was not taken seriously. I will not be seeing her again and would not recommend her to anyone.

I felt as if she was rushing through the appointment. I don\'t think she was listening to what my concerns were. it didn\'t seem like she wanted to help, but get through the appointment. she was just throwing a lot of questions quickly and it overwhelmed me. she wouldn\'t allow me to talk about how the following events of my symptoms and concerns came along. she just kept throwing possible diagnoses and said to see this person and go there. at the end of the appointment she told me to come earlier next time because she was now running late for other appointments. this made me feel like my health was not serious to her. that she was indeed rushing through my appointment. I drove 3 1/2 hours from college to temple to receive care because my health was really concerning me and I felt as if I had no help received that day. I had never wanted to leave an appointment holding back tears until I got to my car and cried. my health has been worrying me and I was happy to finally get some answers for things, and it frustrated and made me less hopeful for things once I left the appointment. I felt so embarrassed because while i was trying to hold back tears and talk to the X-ray department, which I did not get due to not having money to pay for the copay, I felt embarrassed because I just started crying in front of her as I was texting my parents on the poor experience. the whole thing was overwhelming and now I\'m searching for another care provider to help.

I feel like I have to spend a lot of time convincing her that I do have an illness. which I spend most of my life doing with everyone else. I feel like I shouldn\'t have to convince her too. after all. it\'s not like I want the disease. then every time I have a problem she writes it off as something else. rushes through. doesn\'t explain and generally leaves me feeling more confused when I leave than I usually am. and that says a lot.
