I love my work in primary care, when those moments we hold so sacred can be shared between doctor and patient in the most honest and unfiltered way.

    It's early in our relationship and the provider appeared somewhat busy. I don't really have an opinion yet.

    Dr N Yang did not read my history prior to release medicine consultation . The conversation wasn't a two- way . He just explained what his opinion that he believes it's right . He's never been my doctor at all - he's part of the group . Poor professional demeanor !

    Almost non-existent discussion of possible risks from medications I'm prescribed. Discussion of medication treatments are muddied with details of various dosages or medication types which left me confused about what was actually prescribed. Difficult time coming to an mutual understanding of my current condition and/or medications effects; seems much more difficult than it should be.

    The doctor told me he was referring me to ENT but didn't explain I would need to have a hearing test. Would have been nice to understand there would be two separate visits and the potential for them having to be many months apart.

    It was a confusing visit. I had to see someone short notice and they didn't seem familiar w/ my medical history. My issue had been chronic and they kept calling it acute which showed they weren't properly listening as this has been on-going for months but was really severe this time. The solutions didn't seem to medically make sense (taking more advil) and when I expressed concerns at ingesting too much I was met with a "I don't really know." There were no clear next steps or reassurances. I left feeling like it was a waste of time and I shouldn't have cancelled my PT appointment.
