I have a condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which wasn't attended for 15 years due to my carelessness.
Very caring and considerate.
The appointment time was exact at 10.30 am. When doctor met and he studied all reports very thoroughly and listened and asked all the questions very patiently.
He is very thorough in his investigations, and wants to see all the previous reports also to reach a diagnosis. What really impressed me , is that he has time , to listen to you too.
