I was on time, she was on time. She spent more time than I expected. Gave me more explanation than was necessary to determine the next step. I depend on my physician to have the knowledge and experience to recommend a plan of action. I understand the procedure to get me more involved in the treatment plan, but I trust the doctor more than I trust myself.
