Dr.M changed my life!!She always treated her patients with care.I thought all doctors treat their patients that way and I am finding out that is not the case.My Mom was diagnosed with an illness eighteen years before me.I visited five drs within MD/DC/VA explaining the pain I was feeling and they all gave me five different answers.I went to Dr.M for my regular GYN appt and she notice something different w/ me and listen to me.She referred me to a Neurologist who found my illness same as my Mom.
