The video call was the first time meeting Dr. Fraint and he had said he wasn't feeling well that day. An in-person appointment may have been better for me. His recommendation was a follow-up appointment in six months. I have my yearly exam appointment with my primary care doctor in October, I will follow her recommendation.
