I kind of felt like it was rushed but maybe because I said I had to be at work soon.

I visited this provider before my appointment while accompanying my daughter for a visit and the provider did an amazing job with being thorough and walking through our concerns. I was eager to schedule my own appointment and although she listened to each of my questions I felt like the provider may have been in a rush to complete the appointment this time around. I would have loved If she'd sat or stood closer during the appointment versus standing near the door this visit. A thorough explanation of a procedure that I inquired about would have also given me some comfort to book a future appointment for the procedure. Unfortunately, a thorough explanation wasn't provided so I decided to hold off on scheduling the future appointment until I can do more research on my own. Since I've experienced a great visit with her before I'd return and have referred her to a family member. I do hope that future visits would feel less rushed and more thorough and personable.
