I have only been once and will never go back. I went just for my annual exam.
First, the waiting room was dirty and littered with papers and torn magazines. Not really a big deal, but worth mentioning as an indication of further things to come. They took me into the back to do the usual pre-exam things, blood pressure check, weight check, medical history, etc, however, this was done in a large room with 3 other patients present having the same thing done. Not really my idea of paitent privacy.
The exam went fine, the doctor very briefly mentioned something during the breast exam about a lump in my breast and I said, that yes, I just have always had lumpy breasts. I go to check out, and they hand me a referral to a BREAST SURGEON. I nearly fell over from the shock. She never once mentioned anything about going to see a specialist or that I needed a biopsy or anything. I had no idea why I was being referred to a breast surgeon. To top it off, they would not go get the doctor to explain this to me, I had to wait for the doctor to call me later that day to explain it to me.
She was not very forthcoming in why she was referring me to this specialist and left me feeling that I needed to make the appointment she recommended for a mammogram (at age 29) and the appointment with the breast surgeon just to make sure that I didn't have aggressive breast cancer or something from the way she was treating me. Luckily, there was nothing wrong, but what a way to treat a patient.
Needless to say, I will never be going back and never be referring anyone!
