Dr. Karlekar has been my GP for over 10 years, and although I absolutely love her bedside manner and willingness to listen to all of my concerns, my recent visit was disappointing. I arrived early as instructed to fill out paperwork, including inquiries about my exercise frequency (6x a week), type (swimming and elliptical), and length (45 min.). When I arrived in the exam room, when the nurse again asked, I repeated these exact facts. When Dr. Karlekar arrived, we laughed about my improper timing of scheduling a physical the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend, and that I was sure I'd packed on a few pounds, but mentioned I was already back on my usual diet. When I left, I sat in my car and read her notes regarding my visit. Here is exactly what she wrote: "Let's continue to work on diet and exercise. Focus on cleaner eating which means less processed food, more lean meats, legumes and lots of fruits and vegetables! Work on a combination of weight bearing and cardiovascular exercise. Goal is for at least 30-40 min 3 days a week. And chose something you love to do! Tracking with apps such as my fitness pal and weight watchers can help with portion control. All of these measures should help with weight loss and the maintenance of weight loss." Clearly, not only was my chart (regarding my exercise regimen) not read, but my discussion just MOMENTS earlier, regarding my regular diet (of fresh vegetables, legumes, and lean meats) was ignored. I will continue to see Dr. Karlekar, but since you asked, I must admit I was extremely disappointed in this visit. I don't believe I was heard at all (or that my chart was read), and that's very disconcerting.
