I was pleasantly surprised by Dr Systrom's knowledge of POTS and EDS and by his kindness and compassion. He's one of the good doctors who really understands what these conditions are like. His office staff and the entire facility do him a huge disservice by how rude and unprofressional they are. But he's worth braving the hellhole.
