excellent physician who explains options; surgery was the route I had to go for a cure and she made it far less scary and the follow-ups were pretty easy

Great bedside manner! Listens to your concerns and takes the time to explain and answer questions. After surgery, called personally to check on me. Sincerely appeared to care about me as her patient.
