I went with an order to find out an "unspecified jaundice" She let me explained to her my problem while typing then turned and told me: trust me you don't have a problem with your liver, she said to trusted her because she was very good and see people everyday, she just touched my stomach put me to breath and I spent with her the most 10 minutes and left because she was in a rush the whole time when she was with me and then another 10 minutes with the nurse for weight and blood pressure. When I arrived home (30 minutes drive) y got into my chart to see my resume of the visit and realized she put that overall she spent a 45 minutes in my case, when she didn't know anything because she was typing as I was telling her my visit back in November to the hospital. Well she put I didn't have spider veins ( which I do) (that is a sign of jaundice), I have been looking yellow skin, well she said was probably what I have been eating, I told her I have not been able to eat vegetables because I turn yellow and my stomach goes crazy burning my intestines. She put I don't have problems with my eyesight which I do, she put I don't have pain with my back but I do, all those things she never asked me, so I was very upset and called her office to let her know I did have spider veins and so but the nurse told me that the doctor said that she was going to put a note on my record that was not a complete body Checked and if I needed anything else to contact my personal doctor. Very disappointed of her service, regretting that appointment with her. Just to go home with the answer: you turn yellow because what you eat or your body does that! When I'm not able to eat vegetables,, meats, ( only poultry and fish) or grains!!!! Very disappointed still regretting going with her.

My case is an old one and complicated (as are many others no doubt). Dr. Modarisi was quite thorough delving into the history. While abrupt at first, we did reach good clinical conclusions and I was able to share information that she later corroborated in her notes. Looking forward to working with her in the future.
