I was told prior this visit would last 15 minutes. I spent almost an hour waiting which impacted my schedule. The doctor is an amazing surgeon but some forms of communication one on one is missing. After a year of going through this wanted to get more answers for where I was in relation to ratio of goals. Had to ask many questions & left with some unanswered as to some symptoms I am still having. As having to pay out of pocket even with insurance I do not want to waste a visit with no added details.
