    I have been Dr. Banks' patient since 2008 and she is, hands down, one of the best doctors I have had in my life. I am almost 35 years old and her accurate diagnosis of my condition saved my life. I am a medical miracle, and while I believe God had a lot to do with my healing, I know that Dr. Banks' diligence and devotion to me as her patient made all of the difference in the world.
