My only complaint was looking at my medical history and provider notes afterwards had several inaccuracies. Things like saying I refused a test when in fact the test was done and results are in the portal. List of medicines was missing one of the long-term drugs that had been prescribed a previous visit but still had a short term drug that only had a 10 pill, no refill prescription from 3 months ago.

Being a health care provider myself, my provider doesn't necessarily have to spend as much time on disease education as with other patients. I think we could probably put this spared time to better use with discussion of other concerns vs. Having to set up a separate appointment for them. But hey, the insurance only covers one topic at a time, n'est-ce pas?
