I read some negative reviews of Dr Dennison (who I was referred to) which scared me a little. Once I met Dr Dennison and he went over everything with me, I found the negative reviews hard to believe. He was very pleasant and made sure we understood everything and asked if we had any more questions. My 4 for level of trust in his decision is just because I am waiting to have a scan and the results will verify things. Hopefully he was correct in his diagnosis.It would make me very happy.
