Too busy for me

Staff is professional and office is clean. Wait time isn't bad. I've seen this doctor several times and every time I'm there, I feel rushed and like my questions are not important or I don't know what I'm talking about. She seems to get irritated when I ask too many questions or question her diagnosis. I just want to make sure I understand and that nothing is missed, since I have been in pain for years due to fibroids and a cyst. She just brushes it off like fibroids are no big deal, but they are when you are in pain. Not sure if I will continue to see her. I need to find someone to help me feel better. It's hard to find the right doctor.

Good But Still Searching

I was recommended to Dr. Coates. She is great and knows her stuff. But, she is super busy. I have made about 5 appointments but i have only seen her once. And this was on the 1st visit. I am still searching b/c Dr. Coates is just too busy for me. I hope that she doesn't take on any additional patients if she doesn't have time to see them.
