I arrived 15 minutes early as requested and had to leave after 40 minutes total due to a conflicting work call that would take place 20 minutes later. I had hoped I could complete my appointment on time during my break from work. Dr Torkleson did FaceTime me shorty after and apologized and completed a detailed virtual appointment which was greatly appreciated. Thank you.
