I would find it helpful to be asked prior to concluding the time with the doctor, "Do you have any concerns you would like to discuss today?" Such an invitation assures me that I am a person who is being listened to by my care giver.

Dr. Van Acker has excellent communication skills. So far the procedures that she has done on me have not been painful. She is an asset to the medical community in the Greater Lansing area.

A hanging hook in the corner ( perhaps polished metal - easily sanitized) near chair, that would enable hanging of patient clothing would be nice.
