Everyone was very nice and explained everything to me in English (not just doctor talk). I know how busy they were but they took the time with me to explain what was going on and to make sure I had every chance to ask all the questions I wanted to. Dr. Tate is a very caring doctor and makes sure you feel secure in all decisions made with your care.
