Above scoring was for Dr Pimentel. I also saw Chief Resident and while he was professional I did not feel he had empathy or really wanted to hear what I said. I also felt he wrote off my concerns when he said we really don't do anything for that but meds and diet. After speaking to Dr Pimentel (who was very empathetic, checked all my prior records and listened to me) and ordered endoscopy which indicates possible surgery.
