    I think she was knoweldgable helped take decent steps forward. But I didn't feel cared for. I had been in very rough pain for 2 weeks and explained that I didn't have a primary care doctor. I had seen one other primary care doctor within the network one time several years ago for something very different, and Kara told me I should "go see my primary doctor." I needed help and answers in a timely manner, and I felt brushed off. Then we were never followed up with after the labs were completed. I expected a call, but we had to call to get answers and were told again that I should contact my primary care doctor. It felt like my health and my pain was not a concern.
