I scheduled the appointment months ago and chose Dr Curran specifically from the NM website because of her qualifications. I spent maybe 40+ minutes with a student on his first day. I'm happy to work the student and be a part of the education process, but I also made an appointment with an experienced expert for a reason. I spent maybe 20 minutes with Dr Curran out of a 2+ hour appointment. I'm also not sure why I was there for 2 hours. I work in a field where I diagnose problems for others. I know the expertise that I apply to my diagnosis after 20+ years of experience is far more developed, nuanced, and valuable than what someone in my field could do with even a few years of experience. I've had chronic migraines most of my life. How much pain do I need to experience to get the full attention of an experienced doctor? The student did a great job, my problem is that I have a serious problem that profoundly effects my life and I waited months for the full attention of an experienced doctor that I chose. I'm not sure I had enough of an experience with Dr Curran to recommend her.

I can see that Dr Curran does her best for her patients and wants them to feel better. She's not as outgoing and warm as some people want their doctors to be. That's not a necessity for me, I just want someone smart who can understand my health situation and help me figure out how to improve it. She is great at that. If I had a really sensitive friend visiting her for the first time, I would probably warn them to expect her to be really clinical and straightforward in interactions. I love that about her, but some people might prefer more figurative hand holding. Dr Curran is an A+ in my book.
