There was a problem with the faxing of orders to my PCP, not sure whose end the problem was at but it took many emails to Dr Shuhart to get resolved. Seems to be a continuing issue now with getting the results of tests to Dr Shuhart - again not sure which provider is having the faxing issue. It has been close to a month of trying to get faxing of orders done/testing complete/results reviewed in order to get on appropriate medicine, still waiting....

Provider seemed more interested in imparting information whether I needed it or not than he was in my concerns and questions. There was a lot of time spent listening to information that I didn't need than in sharing information that I wanted him to explain [...] I wanted to know how I had progressed or not progressed and what was the best plan to follow forward. That information was really skimmed over as we were at the end of our time. [...] I felt a bit short changed on my input and questions I wanted to ask. A bit frustrating though I got lots of good general information, I was more interested in my specifics from the start. Hope this helps.
