The doctor had a good bed-side manner. He seemed concerned with my problem and made some suggestions to see someone else who might be able to help me. I was impressed with him.

Well, what feedback I have whatever he explain things to me asked me do I understand? But it seemed like he don't understand my feedback on things I'm saying to him so if we can get that back on base right where he constantly he can listen to me a littler more. So then I telling me and seemed like he taking in what I'm saying. So that's my feedback. Otherwise everything else went pretty well, but thank you. Have a blessed day. Bye.
