    She cares about the people the go to see her, she follows through on what they need and makes sure you never leave without knowing everything you need and having all your questions answered. She's easy to talk to as a person and a doctor. And she treats people like they are her friends, not patients she'll forget about once they're out the door. She is always up to date in the medical field and knows the best doctors to refer to if you need a specialist.
