Upon arriving, I was impressed with the office and the amount of people that they managed, which were constantly rotating. No one seemed to waiting for too long of a time. Dr. Murthy met me in her office and tried to chat/learn about me. This was a nice touch and I do appreciate the effort. I did not like the paper napkins that they have you wear for the exam or that she saw no harm in leaving the exam room door wide open while leaving to find something and I was sitting in my paper napkin with my rump exposed to the door. Nor did I appreciate the nurse bursting in at a very inopportune moment without any warning. She gave me a sample and prescription for a birth control that I was unfamiliar with. When I got home, I studied up and decided that it wasn't for me since two of the most common side effects were acne and weight gain and I am so close to my wedding. Also, it had a 2-4% chance of pregnancy while using. I asked for another type which previously had not had those effects on me and claims a 99.9% effective rate. The person that I spoke with on the phone said that those were common side effects and that they were really all the same. She suggested that I needn't bother reading the booklet with the new prescription because it would tell me the same thing. She may have been aiming for humor but I did not appreciate it. It is my body and my choice. I likely will not return to this doctor, even though my sister likes her. I did not ask her a ton of question because I didn't know what to ask. I feel like she might be a good doctor for an older patient who is more knowledgeable about their needs.
