Dr. Tipton knew from the nurse that I had a bad experience with my previous provider, and her first words to me were "I´m here to talk as long as you need me to be, provided I get home by midnight." She was kind and empathetic, something I haven´t received from a doctor in a while. It was a much better experience.
