Dr. Gooch lacks her bedside manners, and I strongly advise her to improve her bedside manners. She knows my history [...] I must acknowledge Dr. Gooch for her knowledge and technical skills in performing surgery.

Mistakes can be made when things are being rushed. I don't think that Dr. Gooch is a bad provider, I just felt that she may have been pressed for time on [...] which limited me to questions that I needed answers to. My mind was all over the place and I was also distracted by the additional staff member that came into the room with Dr. Gooch without being properly introduced. He was nice but I wasn't expecting someone else to come in with her at that time. I had to ask who he was.
