appointment felt very rushed - not a lot of bedside manner. Patient's toes purple, Dr barely discussed this and I felt that my mother was written off as an old person and not given much attention. I would have liked more explanation and more thorough conversation about her condition. suggested support hose without much detail and suggested a diuretic when my mother's chart clearly states she tends to be dehydrated. I had to prod with questions. dr did not seem to understand mother has dementia and thus could not provide an accurate account of how she feels, if she has pain or details of her condition. when someone has dementia the Dr needs to spend more time to make sure nothing is being missed. after the appointment I sent a photo to my mother's dermatologist showing her the purple toes and she said my mother's foot did not look like that at the last exam and that we should consult her physician for possible vascular issues. yet this Dr did not show any concern about that and must have presumed this is how my mother normally looks. she also did not read chart to know she had previously seen my mother and thought she was a new patient. it had been years but she should be looking at the chart more carefully.
