This appointment was made by another Dr.'s office. I did not call myself but was lucky to get in within 3 days. Dr. Rose was very personable but I am somewhat uncomfortable that he always seems to be in a hurry when speaking with me. I feel like I have questions but he is already out the door before I can ask them. He admitted me to the hospital, his team was very accessible.
