the initial patient interview process needs some work

The eval started with an interview. The answers to the first two questions of the interview were, to me, the keynote bases for the evaluation. (I was provided a copy of the report.) When I saw the report, everything seemed to "stream" from them. I was asked, "Do you know what city you are in?" I thought for about 30 seconds and told her I didn't. Then she asked, "Do you know what floor you are on?" Again, "No". When I saw the report, I saw the answers she wanted. As it turns out, she wanted a postal address answer, not a physical, geographical location answer. I thought I was being asked a geography question. As for the floor, I'm not an excuse maker, but there were other circumstances that day with regard to the building and parking that need to be considered. They may be relevant - or not. With regard to location, Dr. Sullivan was using the postal address as the city location. I was trying to respond with a geographical location answer. I thought that was the question I was asked. Although the location had a city in it's postal address, we were not "in" the city. The building is in fact east of the city. Somewhere along the way, I picked up on that fact and remembered it. I thought she was looking for another suburban "location" name, one I might have missed . I was trying to come up with a geographically defined, named location answer and couldn't. The Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. have addresses driven by post office delivery areas, not necessarily by physical, geographic boundary names. As for the floor issue, yes, there was an issue for me. I was a bit late due to traffic. It was my first time there and the parking lot was almost full. I found a place that had a company name associated with it, parked in it and went in to get a parking pass. I got the pass, went back down in the elevator and put the pass in the window. I went back up to the office to check in. Turns out there is another office in the same building with a similar name to Dr. Sullivan's office. So, now I'm going to be a little late - and I hate being late. I decided to not move the car nor retrieve the parking pass. Now, what floor do I go to. That's where confusion set in. After Dr. Sullivan asked the initial set of questions, I was sitting thinking about my (non)answer to her floor location question. I knew I had gone up a couple of floors to the "wrong" practice, but didn't recall how far down I had to go to get to Dr. Sullivan's practice. No need to care or remember since I was where I needed to be just in time. All that being said, I thought the rest of the testing was fair, valid and effective regarding where I stand with memory problems. The evaluation process was thorough, challenging and extensive. The staff was cordial and I enjoyed "working" with the staff. Well done with that part of the process! It's the "keynote" questions and human to human dialogue I have an issue with. But, I may be overly fussy about those types of things. I have been told that before. I would give it another go with this office before I decided for sure. As for my response to "Explained Symptoms"', not that I recall. Big surprise, right? We're talking about memory loss, folks. Seriously, I don't believe we did, but I'm not sure what that term means. Dr. Sullivan didn't prescribe any treatment to me. She did the testing and evaluation. My neurologist will treat me.
