I was asked to come in earlier which I did, but I waited and waited. My appointment altogether was maybe 15 minutes but I was there for over 2 hours. Additionally I was under the impression that I was going to be seen by several MD clinic members for baseline tests, but that wasn't the case at all. I definitely could've done a virtual visit which would've saved me from taking the day off. Next, the doctor ordered an x-ray and I was hoping since I was already there with the day off that I could get that done, but no one knew where to go for it. After waiting even longer for an answer I told them I would get it done closer to my house.

Dr. Sufit was informative concerning my illness and what it entails. He also educated me on what options there are including medications available to help. He was caring and attentive. Very charismatic and positive, all the while teaching the resident. The doctor who spoke to me about my eating and swallowing was amazing as well. Everyone in the clinic was attentive and caring through my difficult experience with ALS. The order and process in which the visit was handle was smooth, orderly and well planned.
