I had and excellent meeting with Dr Shigemura and his Nurse Practicioner, [...]. They very courteous and respectful. My greetings upon entering the office was not courteous nor respectful. The greeter urgently called for me as I was attempting to complete the required paperwork. I explained I was still completing the paperwork she called out "next patient!" I followed her into the examination room. My wife inquired as to whether I needed to complete the paperwork, as I was and existing patient. She angrily removed the paperwork saying she would shred it.
