Because this is first visit and no diagnosis yet, my time with provider was brief as he shared next diagnostic steps and this was very good. The nurse assistant who went over my information and spend most of the time with me was also excellent. [...] Overall the care by them together was very good.

I felt rushed out of there and a bit pacified or nonchalantly patronized. I expressed concerns and talked ab how poorly I feel. [...] I don't feel he is a good fit and I don't feel heard or validated. His bedside manner is poor.
