(1) I want to particularly commend Dr. Althouse for being so thorough as to notice my (apparently large) uterine fibroid - - a palpation - - and to refer me for a pelvic ultrasound and gynecological consult, and (2) for having the empathy and "bedside manner", that made her call me WITHIN AN HOUR of her having gotten the ultrasound results that ruled out ovarian cancer. This meant THE WORLD to me. Thank you, Dr. Althouse!!

I appreciate having Dr. Althouse draw a diagram explaining various functions - like how asthma affects the respiratory system, etc. She also makes a point of spelling out the names of medications on paper.
