Update: Much better experience going in for my first follow-up appointment. Derek listened to me when I told him my issues weren't improving with the treatment he had put me on initially and added other medications as needed. Office renovations were complete, so that was a temporary thing from before that is now not at all a concern. Everyone was very nice and they heard my concerns about where my prescriptions were being sent and appropriately checked the interactions with my current medications. Scheduling and check-in process were simple. I would have appreciated a longer visit to express my concerns. Felt very rushed and only got my face glanced at. Seemed like it could’ve been done over text with a few pictures. Office is a little dinky. Going to stick it out though, hoping the treatment will work. Also sent my prescriptions to a pharmacy I don’t use without asking me first (assuming they have some deal with them) where they can only provide me with name-brand medication.

The staff was kind and polite as always. On this particular visit, I wasn't feeling well. The staff was very concerned and allowed me to stay in the exam room even after my consult until I felt more stable. I even got some treats to stave off the hunger as well as bottled water. Great team expression of kindness. It wasn't for show. It was for real.
