Patient Comments (1)
in Valparaiso, IN |
I have been seeing Dr. St. John for about 1 year. I have a very serious medical condition. She always approaches me in a kind and caring manner. She listens to my input about my health and medication and values what I have to say. She makes me feel like we are a team and asks me how I feel if my medicine is working/dosage. I am grateful to have her as my RA and I recommend her if you need this type of doctor.
