    Dr Abreu was very nice. He explained things so we could understand what was happening, what needed to be done, and all about the different medications. He was patient and considerate. He told us what procedure should be done and weather or not he could travel. He took time with us to discuss the medications and what they were for and what we needed. We were really impressed with him.
