Dr Kritzer did seem a bit rushed (office appeared to be running behind) so I felt it was very important for me to speak up and be sure he heard everything I wanted to tell him before he moved on. But he did respond well and I left satisfied in the visit and in our plan going forward. He was very pleasant and engaging. I could just tell he was very busy but I was able to assert myself.
