    She's very cold...not personable at all. Very by the book, which is great but she could soften her stance and have better bed side manners. I was in her office less than fifteen minutes for her to say "I don't know why you are here" Really? I'm telling you my concerns for a reason. I was referred to you for a reason, not just to collect my money and have me leave in tears, with no concern or compassion.
