    Everyone was delayed in seeing me. I'm not sure why we have to wait for lab results. I would be happy to come in early & have those drawn prior to the visit if it meant being seen sooner. The health car providers have all been nice but long waits in exam rooms and lobbys only adds to my fatigue & weakness by the time I get home. My family member had to leave me and go to work before we could get an explanation of the plan of care going forward.

    We tried to get in contact with her over the holidays & couldn't. We did discuss with her going forward what was the protocol to contact her. I think she was annoyed with the whole situation, thus annoyed with us.

      Dr Patel is a good listener, always willing to make helpful suggestions, and always ends the appt by asking, "is there anything else we can do for you today?" All of these attributes are appreciated.
