The provider was a PA covering the patients of my regular provider during his absence. The provider I saw was very direct in providing concern for my BP, weight, and cholesterol numbers. I am grateful to this provider for focusing on these issues with me, however I did not feel that I was heard as I tried to give background information that would assist in defining the complexity of my issues.

I feel all my doctors take good care of my concerns and Caryl Richards will follow up with me on blood work and medications in case there needs to be a change. All my doctors will do that. I feel I have the best.
