Very long wait between being put in exam room and dr. coming in.
Patient | December 28, 2016

I have had 2 does in the "electrical" dept. and have not "loved" either one which I cannot equate to being a poor doc. I did like Dr. Shen much more this yr. than last as she seemed more concerned.

I will always be grateful to Dr. Shen for the questions she asked me before my surgery in April, which determined what side to put the pacemaker in.
