National Jewish Health Patient– June, 2021 I don't feel the provider listened to me or what my concerns were. I just got so overwhelmed and gave up trying to really talk to her. She got straight to the point and was very blunt about what was happening (by the way, I already knew all of this) and just jumped straight to trying to solve my issues without really listening to me or trying to understand why I no longer care to see the other providers I have seen for the same issue over the last 10 year. I'm just so tired of not being included in the process or listened to and just give up trying to even talk. I know I don't like the solutions being offered, but am tired of not being heard. I know she is busy but it's still difficult for me. She made it seem like no big deal.
