Kent, WA |
Dr. Harkins, care has been a solid foundation for me to begin redefining a starting place for me to overcome fears of being stuck in obesity forever. Working with Dr. Harkins and her nutritionist's has been educational, healing, hopeful, and my thyroid is now working, with weight loss. Yes, I am looking forward to continued success.
