Confirmation of the appointment was very confusing. First it was confirmed at 8:15 and 8:45 am. Then changed to 9:15 and 9:45 am due to Dr Genin arriving late the evening before, which was understandable BUT then another voicemail was received confirming the original time. I decided to come in early and take my chances to be on time even if I had to wait for Dr Genin. This appointment was very important to me.

Dr Genin answered the many questions I had and provided me with answers and decisions I need to make. I have "faith" in him and am sure he will do what he can. On the other hand, I could have been provided and a better fit of the brace that was offered. There were only two options and the young lady who brought it in never helped me, just sat and looked on while my husband and I worked to get it on. I know it isn't rocket science but a professional should have guided us through it to make sure it is the correct fit. Maybe that isn't part of her job??

This was a weird visit. First I scheduled the appt without a referral thinking that I needed an orthopedist. Apparently the dr doesn't do feet. This was out of his expertise. He tried to help but he basically came in and said that he tends to asks questions and not let patient speak (in so many words he said this). Which really set the tone for me to allow him to not listen to me (its the psychology of it). He was a nice guy just not the expert I was hoping for.

My last appointment was very rushed. The appointment was scheduled for 15 minutes, and i doubt it lasted two, leaving me wondering why I was there. The doctor did ask if I had any questions, and did answer (albeit in as few words as possible) the ones that I had. It just felt unnecessarily rushed. While there is no reason to make an appointment last 15 minutes just because it was scheduled for that length, there is also no reason to have a rushed two minute appointment when 15 has been allotted (and paid for).
