Everything went as planed.

I did have to wait quite a lot of time past my scheduled time in the examination before the doctor came to see me but he did apologize for keeping me waiting and I understand that unexpected things come up which result is delays. It seems to me that someone could have come in to tell me that the doctor was delayed so I would have at least known that I had not been forgotten.

Check in lady drilled me I was getting angry, asking if I was sure what knee and why I was there to see Dr king, there should be notes for her I was late from the cab and called ahead to notify, w my past head injuries, I can recall info once, then feel questioned and no info comes just anger, I'm not stupid just broken, but still works painfully, I to have worth.

Hey, I'm just very upset with my hands. They keep sending me to the wrong doctor. He's not a hand doctor. Now, I got to wait for a referral to a hand doctor. I'm so tired of separating. Nobody wants to help me out with any pain medicine. That's it.

Right after my brother's appointment yesterday, I am going to call the his primary who is [name redacted] in Mada Vista, Colorado and tell her that he was the best experience that my brother's ever had at a doctor's office, and that I would highly recommend him, and if he does ever have to have surgery, we will gladly go back to see him. He was amazing and his staff was also great. Thank you for everything. And like I said, we had a great experience there, and we really enjoyed the Dr. King and the staff. Thank you so much.
