Wait time

The wait time is ridiculous. Dr Varma is thorough but the waiting time is 100 times longer than the time spent with me as a patient. It is hard to appreciate her when you're blood pressure goes up and you are angry about the wait. And she is not very nice about it.

HORRIBLE EXPERENCE

I have DI (Diabetes Insipidus) which is not diabetes. It is a rare condition involving my pituitary glade caused from an auto accident 23 yrs ago. My previous doctor has had me on a nasal spray for the past 23 yrs which regulates my water level since my body no longer do this on its on. At my first visit Dr Varma had me walking out of her office with a ref to see a heart dr no heart condition, a rheumatologist for whatever reason and an ENT ?? She switched by medication for DI to a pill form trying to get me on a correct dose. Had (1) blood test which she called normal when in fact it couldnt of been further from the truth. I have had this disease for 24 yrs. If i dont take the correct amt of this artificial hormone I will dehydrate much sooner than a normal person would & it is life threatening. Long story short she tried to tell me the initial amt she prescribed was correct when it was not by any means. When i dont have the correct dosage I have to urinate every 10 minutes - full bladder and become so thirsty for fluid i would guzzle hot coffee or anything else I could get my hands on. She refused to adjust/increase the dosage ??? You tell me how normal is having to go to the restroom every 10 minutes full bladder. I will never return to this doctor. She obviously does' not understand the seriousness of DI which is very frightening. Be careful.
