May 11, 2022

This was 1st visit w/dr. as previous RNP retired last yr. right after appt. so I don't have relationship established w/this dr. "Old age" & providing scripts doesn't cut it - let's get to root of problem. I was referred to an endocrinologist who has since answered & is working on my conditions/issues - "getting to the root." Dr. was nice enough & seemed to listen, but I'm not overly impressed @ this time.

He is new but trying hard!

Love the dr.

The doctor is very easy to talk with and seemed genuine and interested in what I am dealing with health wise.
