In and out in 5 minutes

This was my second appointment with Gus person. I will never go back to see her. She gave me and entire body exam in about 3 minutes. Said practicality nothing. I had to ask her to burn off a couple of small skin cancers on my face. Did not check my scalp or answer questions regarding a mole on my neck and several skin tags. I waited 3 months for this appointment and was very disappointed. She may be a great doctor, but that was not my experience - TWICE.

SO RUDE and discourteous

It's a bad sign when a doctor you've never met enters with "What's up?" I wasn't in a hurry, but acknowledgment of the LONG wait (and I was 2nd in line right after their lunch break) would have been appreciated. I was stunned by her rude behavior, especially when I asked (nicely) whether they would go online (they depend on a FAX machine!) and then later when I asked whether the prescription could be called into the pharmacy (NO!). Such a difference with my doctor... they actually use electronic communications and are friendly/helpful. I will not return! :-(
