This was probably the worst experience I have had. The doctor was over an hour late seeing me. The nurse who took my vitals seemed to just shuffle me around and I felt like I was simply just another part of her job to get done and move on instead of a human being. After my vitals were taken and after a long time the doctor showed up. If I didn't see his picture online before the visit I would not have even guessed he was my doctor for he didn't even introduce himself, he wasn't wearing a white lab coat or showed any other indication that he was a physician.
I know the above seems nitpicking and perhaps it is, and I wish that this was why I gave him one star but this was really just icing on the cake of my experience. The doctor asked me a few questions, listened to my chest but didn't seem to really be listening to me. I came due to concerns of anxiety and high blood pressure, and even though I was telling him that I was having panic attacks at night and that my blood pressure was 140/80 (and the only reason I knew this was the reading is because I glanced at what the nurse wrote down, the doctor didn't even mention it) and I felt concerned, he said that I was in good health and that I wasn't sick. As an afterthought he asked me if I had anything going on in my life that might cause this and I explained to him that is why I am so worried, I don't have anything going on in my life that should be causing anxiety or stress that would warrant this issue. He prescribed me a low dosage beta blocker but I feel like he was not taking my concerns seriously. I feel like he was inattentive, lazy, uninterested, and essentially rushed even though this is an issue that is important.
The office was easy enough to find. They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. They gave about the same level of care as others I have been to for the same problem. I've been to one or two places that had a really bad smell. I was worried I would encounter it here too but I didn't notice anything. They had quite a few interesting magazines, which made my time in the waiting room go by much faster.
