Like I said she has been my Physician for about 6 or so years, and was my mothers Dr., for a few years as well. I have every confidence in her.

The doctor had a clear agenda on her mind and wasn't interested in talking with me about the issue and possible solutions. She told me what she was going to do and I didn't have a day and wasn't heard about my concerns and questions. She talked over me and was out of the office without any concern for my confidence and agreement with her directives.

Dr. Urriola has cared for me personally from our first visit ~10 years ago through today, and has seen me through back surgeries, referrals for various specialties, life changing events, and so on. Basically she has taken me from my prime to my present post-prime, and has kept me healthy, repaired, maintained, and prepared for the future. I think it's been a terrific relationship.

Doctor Urriola is the best. I drive far way just to have my appointment with her. I prefer to wait and be seen by her than any other doctor.

don't call the drugs by their prescription or medical names...use the name I'm used to so I know what you're talking about...or just easy classify -- muscle relaxer, tylenol with codeine..otherwise I'm lost.

I did mention to Alina that I had trouble sleeping and there was no comment or suggestions for sleeping aids. I have used Ambien a couple years ago - only once a month after several nights of not being able to sleep so I don't abuse it but there was no comment from her when I told her about my non-sleeping.

I had a series of tests done: blood, urine, ultra-sound on Friday and Saturday. I didn't get results till Sunday evening on MyChart. I called the office Monday and asked if the doctor would review my results. I was asked...didn't you get your results on MyChart. I answered yes but that I wanted to review them with my doctor since the numbers don't mean a lot. The doctors assistant called me back in a timely manner, but with the same attitude that MyChart should be sufficient. I disagree and am not happy that the doctor herself did not review the results with me. I don't feel MyChart should be a replacement for the doctors final review of my test results.
