The time that my appointment is scheduled is the time that I'm escorted into her office. Her assistant has already asked all of the basic information so she doesn't need to spend much time going over that same information, although she's certainly makes herself available to other questions. What I really like is that once she makes a decision on how to handle the problem, she asks me if I agree with her plan. Of course, I always agree because she's the doctor but I really appreciate her asking that question. She thoroughly explains what she's going to do and then tells me the pain level to expect. She's the best!
