Visit went well enough, but confusing about after tests. After having tests and waiting a week, never hearing about results, called dr.'s office. They had not received test results from Good Sam Hospital not sure why. I called dr. office and inquired, still waiting on doctor to reply back. Have an appt. scheduled, but dr. said if everything was fine, I would not need to keep apt. But have no idea if I need to keep apt. or not - Why does it take so long to get a response?

Appt. at 1:30 AM with Dr. Raju the wait at the time of this office visit was over an hour from the time I arrived until I was taken to exam room. The dr. had an emergency and was behind in appts. I should have been told that at the time of sign in. I had another dr. appt. in the tower II building at 11:30 AM - I could have gone to atrium and had a snack while waiting I finally arrived home at 3:30 PM from this appt - with my driver. Some change should be made.

My previous physician retired so this was my first time seeing Dr. Raju. I had a previous event ten years ago that has warranted continual follow-up. He was very attentive, asked a lot of questions, reviewed my medical record while I was in the room, and answered a lot of questions my wife asked. After reading my chart, he explained what had happened, explained how things are now and reassured us that I didn't need surgery at this time but would keep monitoring my condition. He suggested a different follow-up for next year which I haven't had done before. When you've had such complete confidence in your previous physician, it's scary for someone new to take over. Just hoping he proves to be a good choice. I'm happy so far.
