Patient | June 28, 2016

I am trying to find a new doctor. My doctor is in such a hurry that I feel I am being rushed out of the office and he interrupts me when I talk and has a way of ending the visit without regard as to whether I got to discuss the things I came to him to discuss. My most recent visit I brought a list of things I wanted to discuss and we never got to any of them. He controls the discussion, I think he is too busy, and I am trying to find new doctor.
