She was to the point and efficient, but I didn't feel rushed. I felt she was very competent, listened and is what I told someone was, "she was good!" I could tell she was good at her job, very observant and compassionate.

couldn't get a word in. then after she was locked into her laptop. I get she has to put in orders however, this was our first time meeting. just sit for 30 seconds. let's chat about my issue/POC/treatment. it was like a tornado that finally settled, I was still trying to gather my thoughts by the end.
