The doctor was professional and straight talking, I felt listened to and comfortable talking to him. I still feel like we did a little bit of rushing.

Dr. Larson is fantastic as a general practitioner. He has an overview of all of my health issues and views it all as a whole. He's responsive to questions and is patient, even after I've asked a BUNCH.
