SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Overall, I was pleased with the experience. Initially, I got the impression that he was going to move too quickly for me to ask questions, but after a few minutes. realized that I would be given adequate time to express my concerns. I had prepared for the appointment so I was anxious about having time to go through my prepared questions.
