She makes me feel like I’m her only patient. I never feel like we are on “the clock” when we are having conversations about my health. She knows I prefer natural & organic regimens when possible & doesn’t judge or condem my beliefs on them. She’s always smiling and I always leave with a positive perspective regardless of what I must deal with health wise, or shall I say WE, as she makes sure you feel like a team.
