Consummate Professional
I've been seeing Dr. August for 2 years now and in that time my blood pressure had dropped from "a yellow and sometimes red flag" level to 125/75 in the latest session. It was done through a diagnosis no other doctor had made, identifying the proper treatment and medication, and implementing that treatment. The doctor is thorough, interested in the whole patient, and, what I deem to be critical with my doctors, an excellent communicator (as are all the female doctors I have). You know exactly where you stand with Dr. August.
