Being Curteous, good bedside manner, etc., are what every doctor should have. I have not had what has been described with Dr. Rich. I would like for my GP to do more than take my BP and walk out of the room indicating that I should follow. How about listening to my breathing, reflexes, and discussing the medications that I am currently taking.
I am looking for a different type of GP and when I find him or her, I am going to request an interview to find out if he or she is going to give me the type of care that research says that every patient should have and what I am entitled to.
