I had to wait a long time to see the Doctor for my appointment (45 minutes) that was initiated by your computer, not by me. Dr Kaliski gave the impression he was annoyed.

Very knowledgeable medical staff!

I requested a room with an exam table that could be lowered as my conditions makes getting up on the high exam tables very difficult. She immediately said no. She showed no empathy for my situation. i have enough struggles day to day that it's really sad when the doctors office is not able to show compassion and care. She said such a room wasn't available. when my doctor came in he asked if a room with a lower table would be helpful (we discussed this at my last visit so was nice to see he remembered). He left then and found a room. He shouldn't have had to do this - his time is better spent with patients.

I had some specific concerns that seemed to be addressed with a larger overall plan. I have trust and believe in the suggestions to get to better health overall, but I do feel that one of my concerns wasn't discussed much.
