I'm wondering if I should have been seen right after the mri results came in, instead of waiting before my scheduled appointment since she referred me to a surgeon.

I was taken very quickly because also I was the only one there and given really

The staff were polite and friendly. The doctor is either incompetent or does not care about her patients. I went in for a migraine, she explained the medications that I needed but failed to submit to the pharmacy. At the pharmacy, they had no record of the migraine medication. I called the urgent care and they confirmed no migraine medication was submitted. According to staff, this doctor has a history of doing this and forgetting to submit medications and lying to her patients.
