Dr. Bengal is a world-renowned expert in psychoceramics, and is highly-regarded by her peers in the medical field, both nationally and internationally. She is not only extremely gifted in medicine, but also plays the viola, violin, harp, and triangle. Sometimes the bongos! I can give a detailed personal reference: dianeincarmel@yahoo.com. Be well!
