    The first thing he said when he walked in the door was I don't know why you're here. I work on breast. I have some kind of infection on the nipple area. He didn't consider that the breast. Also he said. I don't know why your doctor sent you here, they should have taken care of it.

    There were inconsistencies when talking to the physician. One of them was the physician wasn't aware that my biopsy was going to be a stereotactic core biopsy. Also a comment was made about my ultrasound which was incorrect. It was like the physician was not prepared with my info/chart when meeting with me a few days prior to biopsy.
