SHC Patient, May 2016

I felt like the appointment/exam was rushed by Dr. Colevas, did not feel like he remembered me/my case, talked more to his Nurse Practitioner than to me, and little interest in whether I had any questions or concerns. On the other hand, I LOVE Dr. Orloff, Dr. Kizner and Dr. Hancock! and their teams.
