Dr. Nayak was very nice. I would score higher but I wasn't thoroughly impressed by the interaction with lab personnel. I don't understand why the individual communicated with me in they manner they did. I communicated my concerns clearly to the individual. We worked through it and everything was fine in the end but I do believe the focus should always be on patient care and patient comfort. If the patient ever communicates discomfort the focus should be on clarifying and resolving. Taking an offensive stance and trying to prove ones experience or history of ratings may not be the best approach to address a patients discomfort. Once again, we communicated through the interaction and everything ended up just fine. I commend the individual for continue to communicate until I felt less discomfort in the interaction. I hope it was just a one-off miscommunication. If not it could be an opportunity for communication and interpersonal dynamics training. Overall the front desk person and MA were 100%.
