The medical technician who took me back, took my weight, blood pressure, etc, did not respond to a "Good morning" or anything else. She acted as if I was not there. No smile, nothing. She also wrote down wrong weight in chart, which fortunately came out in meeting with Dr. Wu. He and I went back to check weight and she had entered 3 lbs. less than my actual weight.
