I have now seen seven doctors in Ft. Worth/Arlington area. Dr. Shide exemplifies what you wish all doctors to be. She is thorough with her physical exam and with her discussion of treatment. Spouse and I felt at ease asking what we had questions about. As soon as the nurse does your vitals, she seems to be in the room with you. As I've said before, medical industry could take a lesson from her.
