Hi @Pouch2021 -
I appreciate the honesty! A lot of the times it seems like there is a trade-off between highly talented physicians and compassion, bedside manor, communication, etc. Not always, of course. I am nervous to see anyone, to be honest, because I don't want to hear bad news. But I also don't to be in pain forever. I would agree with you, Shen probably is a pouch machine - just goes through thousands a year. That doesn't make me feel great; but, if he is truly "the best" - then it might be worth the lack of individualization.
Time will tell - I can't get in there anyway. I nailed down an appointment elsewhere for Monday AM, so that is a start.
