NP didn't take very much time to talk with me about my main reason for being there and did not let me talk at all about other issues I wanted to discuss. I felt rushed once she entered the room and she was gone so quick I no longer wanted to talk to her about other matters or to see her in future visits. Also she tried to schedule me for other exams/procedures I did not ask for or approve of without asking me how I felt about it.
