*Dr. Eng apparently had an emergency prior to our appointment. However we drove from Florida for this appointment. Felt we drove 9 hours for a rushed 15 min. appointment.

I feel Dr. Eng is a very qualified physician in her field, but personally, I know that I'm not a high priority. I voiced some concerns, and I feel that they are continually dismissed.

*Dr. Eng is one of the best doctors that I have been in their care. She treated me as a person not just a patient. I have never had a doctor show as much compassion.
