    The doctor was appropriately reserved but very considerate and kind.
    All good.
    I was quite satisfied with this care provider.This was my first appointment. I would have liked a better game plan as to what happens when my medical records were received and was looking forward to having a date set up 4 meeting with my provider to discuss the next step.
    Still waiting for surgery date
