    Dr, Speed is the most caring doctor. She treats her patients like their her own family. I just wish l would have know about her sooner. Like my god says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning light. And Dr. Speed is truly a shinning light that god has place in a lot of people lives.
