Very good visit. Explains everything.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

I think I was referred to this Dr. because of my ins at the time which was BC HMO. My coverage has changed and now I have BC PPO. I can change Dr's at this if I want because I no longer need referral from a primary care physician. But I do not think I will do that. I very happy with the services I have been receiving under his care and feel I have made quite an improvement. Still a long way to go but feel I am finally getting a handle on my disease after 17 years. Sad to say the Dr. who referred to me Dr. I will not be using her anymore. Was not happy at the last visit. I wish had been seeing this Dr. years ago and maybe I would be in better condition. Better late than never. Thanks for allowing to complete this survey
