Dr. Kita Care is far above many VM providers in her care, concern, empathy. I trust her in any direction she suggests. She should be role model to VM providers on how to meet patient's needs effectively. Even her body language is open with direct eye contact. She exudes warmth. She never seems in a hurry and makes me feel as I am her only appointment for the day. She is patient. She never seems in a rush and always makes sure that all my questions/concerns are addressed. Leaves the room with "Is there anything else I can do for you?". Dr. Kita is open to my input and thoughts I may have. Kind, respectful
