I was treated with kindness concern and respect

  Aug 14, 2023
This visit was different as a student doctor took the lead of this examination rather than Dr Folger. I was asked for my permission, which I granted. Obviously the trainee was meeting for the first time so he was not fully familiar with my history and current condition. The examination went just fine, but without the ease and familiarity as with Dr Folger. Dr Folger did come in and spent the final 15 minutes or so of the appointment with me.
