I pay for my insurance which pays for my medical. I have had issues in the past which causes me to have a problem with a med student in the room with a doctor listening to my personal medical issues. As I said I pay for my medical and not to teach a student. It's difficult enough speaking of my issues to the Dr, there is no need for me to feel more uncomfortable speaking with other people in the room. The main concern should be that of the patient. Thank you

I needed to make a follow up appt and would have had to wait 20 minutes (that's what I was told) just until it would be my turn to speak with someone. That was longer than I had to wait to see Dr.Muruve and seems very inefficient. Also I had called earlier to ask a simple question and it took 2 calls and 25 minutes of waiting and being transferred until I got to speak with someone who knew the answer. Also very inefficient and frustrating.

Dr. Muruve listened to my concerns, and took time to answer my questions. Now a days so many medical professionals are jammed up with back to back appointments and try to get patients in and out as quickly as possible.

Refreshing change of attitude.
