Only a suggestion..I think leaving the office with a copy of the follow-up instructions would be helpful

Dr. Fenton is absolutely delightful! He’s consistently patient, caring and informative. I love that he always has a plan; I feel like he’s determined to help me win this battle with my skin! Amber, his assistant was amazing! It was so nice to be treated by 2 individuals who genuinely care and want to help!

This appointment was made for me to see Dr. Pietras for the first patch test reading, and Dr. Fenton on the second. I ended up seeing Dr. Fenton for both, which took me by surprise. The only explanation given was thaat Dr. Pietras wasn't available on Friday....nothing about him not being available on Wednesday when I thought I was going to see him. I feel less confident in the Contact Dermatitis testing when I am seeing different doctors throughout. It makes it difficult to know who to ask questions of on the portal message system. I do thhink there needs to be more written instructions with the patch test procedure, not just spoken information about bathing, etc. There is so much to take in that it is easy to forget. It would be very beneficial if the images taken of our patch test could be shared with us on the portal instead of just in the doctor's records. I don't see why that isn't possible when other doctor's can share images of colonoscopy results, etc. And it is possible for me to attach an image to a message from my end. Why can't this happen from the doctor's end? As a patient I want information and details of what and why things are happening. I want to understand what is going on and to be part of the process of taking charge of my own health these sources of information are important.
