Patient Comment September 2018
He tends to be too windy in his conversations and utilizes analogies when discussing my medical care. It is ok, but I would rather have straight conversation and more directed about the plan of my care. I feel like we don't have direct conversation and it seems somewhat scattered each time I come in.
