Brian was very perceptive and interested in my concerns, he caught more than I initially anticipated he would as evidenced from his physician notes. His concern was genuine and non-judging and the conclusions were exactly what I had anticipated from my own research to coming in for the appointment. He followed up *immediately* after my results came in from another clinic and that offered me some relief because otherwise I would have to try and sleep worrying about any unknowns -- he settled all unsettling thoughts just moments after the results came in. Deeply impressed on multiple levels.
