the doctor spent part of the visit asking questions about religion, that I could watch mass on tv and made other religious comments I found inappropriate.

Seemed uncomfortable with my decision to not take the virus vaccine or take the test at this point I'm just not sure but it made me feel uncomfortable and that's not what I want to feel. My Choice.

Dr. Martens always makes me feel like she is truly concerned for my health and I never feel rushed. She clearly discusses treatment options and patiently answers any questions.

I don't even know where to begin it was SO horrible. Was it the moment the dr. came in while the nurse was still taking my vitals and was super rude about it and made the nurse feel bad or the fact that she wouldn't let me tell her my current health concerns during my annual physical and she made me choose to have a regular visit or physical. perhaps the fact that you are SO rushed by her that you aren't able to get everything out. maybe it's when she refers to a book in her pocket when you tell her a symptom or her phone. shouldn't she know? She is awful and makes you feel awful. I don't trust being in her care when she doesn't really take the time to know me or my medical history. also, when she uses the phrases "I'm wondering, I think or maybe" makes me very leery. just bad... I'm moving on to someone else.
