Dr. Desmond is awesome! I talked to a lot of providers about my thyroid but she was the first one who actually listened to my concerns and took the time to explain what some of those other providers were talking about. I need to be well informed before I can feel comfortable about making a decision about my health and I finally I found I could get that and move forward... so onwards we go. The clinic is also nice and the other people I met there all seemed really cool, I'll come back for sure :D
