Patient | January 19, 2017

No real problems with provider other than his demeanor. Seemed annoyed when I tried to give more information regarding my condition. On a side note, I feel EHR make appointment times feel impersonal and cause providers to focus on the screen and not on the patient. as a provider myself, sometimes body language is essential in diagnosis.
