Sometimes this provider answers my questions with a somewhat terse or automatic response - doesn't really seem to listen to what I'm asking or doesn't want to take the time.

When I arrived at the ER room at 4 AM [...] coughing up blood which turned out to be a bleeding ulcer which Dr. Hames identified with an upper scope he put some staples or something like that on Ulcer put me on meds to treat it. I was very pleased with course of action he took no more pain or discomfort since then!

I am disappointed about the over 30 minutes wait in the exam room; no one care to tell me that the provider needed more time to study the patient medical record.

Provider didn't really address my concerns or explain possible future procedures. I was given a pamphlet which was helpful.

Dr. Hames spent very little time with me during the visit. He was less responsive when I told him I was unintroduced on his route of treatment.
