Dr Beach always spends enough time with me and I feel that he cares about my health. I was just frustrated by the excessive amount of time that it took for the resident to review my history with me. Some of that could have been done prior to the appointment. It was obvious that he knew nothing about my case. I know that Dr Beach sees a large amount of patients but the resident took way too long.
