    Felt very rushed. The doctor came in. Did not really listen to my related history. Honed in on one symptom, said I needed stool studies, read results of the CT scan I had had, and told nurse to schedule procedures. Handed a copy of the CT results to my daughter, told her thanks for bringing me in, shook our hands, and was out the door. Whole time took approximately 8 minutes. Felt very rushed.
