I asked a question by phone, about how long I could expect to be out of work after my procedure, and I was treated as if I was asking an unreasonable question. The person grudgingly offered to ask the doctor and call me back, after I said that I couldn't reasonably ask for leave from work for "quite a while" after my procedure, and that I needed a more specific time frame. It's not out of line to seek that information.

All of our questions were answered and both Drs were great! Dr Crichlow and I can't recall the other Dr's name who meet with us first. The lady who took out my staples was very nice and had a great sense of humor. Thank you for the valet service!!
