I came in for a medication refill and two other issues. I have a doctorate and I am fully understanding of his reasons. However, I specifically asked that if he was just not going to refill the prescription without giving another solution, then I would not need to waste the time and money. And he did exactly that. It was a complete waste of $45 and time away from work. I still have all 3 of the same issues that I walked in with. And he was like, well, if it gets worse - let me know. I am already planning a visit to urgent care, due to the fact that my ear pain has been happening for 2 weeks. He even stated that if it lasted for two weeks, to let him know. I stated, it has been two weeks. I felt like he was just done with me.

my primary care provider is a different doctor and I am glad I have him. My appointment with Dr. Sewell was for 1:40 I was not seen till well after 2:05. He logged onto Epic asked me a few questions about why I "thought" I had bronchitis spent maybe 3 minutes assessing me and that was it. I told him I had ear pain, he didn't look in my ears or my nose. He only looked down my throat and listened to my lungs. That was the extent of my "exam" even after I stated to him that an illness prior, I "thought" I had bronchitis and was diagnosed with pneumonia. I asked for a note for work. He told me they would give it to me at the front desk. (my primary PCP, has always been the one to give me a note as he sits down at the computer and makes his notes or reads them) and I was also not given the papers at the end of the appointment which states my vitals and what I was diagnosed with. (which also my PcP ALWAYS provides) I was very disappointed in my experience yesterday. basically diagnosed myself and paid to be told that and lack of exam. I will never make or accept an appoint with this provider.
