Voice of the patient
“The doctor was extremely helpful. He took the time to describe everything that had been done, what the results were, and what I would need to do next. He listened to my concerns and more than answered all of my questions. I was very impressed with his openness and candor. He took the time to sit with me and do all of this. I never felt that he was rushed or in a hurry to leave. He stayed until we were both sure that everything had been discussed."
