Usually Dr. Burgner listens carefully & takes as much time as is necessary to resolve an issue. This time she was distracted because she was trying very hard to use the computer & new system to be sure all was entered right to follow Medicare requirements. Unfortunately many doctors are not allowed to doctor & listen because of corporation requirements. New system seems to be overwhelming everyone.
