Very friendly. She didn´t "talk down" to me or ignore me as if I wasn´t there. She talked to my daughter & son - but made sure she included ME in the conversation.

All care was both explained in laymens terms, and thourough.

August 2016
MD informed me of 40 minutes only to discuss my issues/concerns which increased my anxiety and made my visit rushed to get my questions answered and find out the plan for me to follow. I think she was great for being honest and keeping me focused on the problems at hand but not all my questions could be discussed at his visit.
