5 out of 5 stars

This doctor was knowledgeable & took time to go over the process in detail allowing for interaction with questions no matter how small. The layout removed so much patient anxiety but more importantly quickly built a trust between the doctor/me so vital to anticipated surgery & recovery. I have every confidence in her competence to do what is best for my highest good. That is a high compliment!
