Nose Bleed

4 repeated visits for a nose bleed without change in treatment. The silver nitrate treatment lead to sinus infection and that exacerbated into bronchitis. Needed 2 rounds of steroids and 3 rounds of antibios to recover. Still have nose bleeds. After the 2nd visit, the doctor should have recommended different treatment. Doctor seems uninterested and in a hurry to treat and leave.

Billing contractor made a huge mistake and lost my payment. Nurse is exceptionally nice; front office just OK. The doctor is straight forward, lacking warmth. No wait to get an appt.
