Frankly, I felt the provider was cold & uninterested, the questions she asked were the same as on the questionnaire I had filled out prior to the appt. What was the point? & I was particularly angry at what I was charged for the 20 minutes I spent with her.

I am unlikely to recommend Swedish care providers due to the outrageous wait times for appointments.

After the initial CPAP take home test, a technician called and told me that I had some statistics show that I needed to get a CPAP (which I did). This needs to be reconsidered. I did not feel that the call and brief discussion was enough for the diagonsis and recommended treatment. Felt like a "machine" approach to this difficult issue. I needed to schedule an interim visit (before the 2 or 3 month follow-up appt.) to have the Dr. show me (more) and answer questions regarding the results of the sleep test. It is a difficult treatment and you need to bring the patient "onboard" or the result will be failure by the patient to work through the difficulties and persevere to be a CPAP user. And it is so important for the patient's health. I think you are missing a valuable part of the process.
