If you visit the doctor and at the end have to pay for a visit hundreds of dollars (BCBS these days doesn't pays for anything) at least you expect that your doctor spends more than 5 minutes with you. Not saying that almost all that time the doctor checks and writes something on the comp. I was under the pressure to talk very fast just to explain my problem. It's always looks like the doctor is just ready to jump and be outside the room after couple of minutes. She did not even know what kind of medicine I take. These days every single time I visit almost any doctor in USA, I feel really disconnect and always have a feeling that the doctor doesn't have enough time to resolve my problem and (it is even worse) doesn't really care.

The plan of care was very successful and I thank her very much for your diligence in. Prescribing me the right medication and following up with an x-ray to rule out pneumonia period.
