PATIENT COMMENTS

February 9, 2021
Provider wanted to cancel appt. 2.5 hours before scheduled time. I had already taken the day off work. Didn't seem to have full grasp of medical history or case - this was my first visit with provider after waiting months to be seen. He agreed I needed labs drawn but remained in my chart for an hour past the end of the appt. So labels couldn't be printed in the lab - I had to wait. Overall he demonstrated a lack of understanding of the patient experience.

Dr. Masoud is excellent.

The time with Dr. Masoud was a bit limited, but we didn't have to wait long to see him either. Need a better way to get feedback after the appointment.

Dr. Masoud is my all time favorite doctor! I have moved to New Hampshire and have changed all of my doctors except him! Traveling 5 hours for my yearly visits with him is worth it!
