He took his time with the patient and the family members explaining the rare illness Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. He was sensitive about the subject matter concerning this illness and the home environment. He made his recommendations for caring for the patient and prognosis. He was honest but also sensitive again. I would recommend him to anyone looking for time, compassion and the truth. Thank You D. Larson
