Patient Comments (1)
Reading, PA |
She provides exceptional care and accessibility with a no rush approach to questions and consultations. Takes the time to ensure all questions are not only answered, but also understood fully by individual patient and family. She is committed to providing you with the right choices, follow-up and setting you up for success after the surgery. Highly recommended and respected from the nursing staff. I have never received better surgical care.
