What are your general comments?

"see above; my first interviewer had to go into a surgery but they found another person within an hour and a half, so not too bad. she was quite nice but i searched her later and found out she was a phd, not md. was stressful in the sense that every answer seemed to lead to more questions-- but to be fair, her questions were quite logical and thorough. at least she cared about what i had to say!"
