A fair assessment.

In my opinion, I feel extremely comfortable while taking with Dr. Kannanday. She makes good eye contact, and is easy to talk to, because she LISTENS. I feel Melissa helps a person develop through there problems at there own pace. And the advantage to this approach is; that while you talk about your problems out loud with someone who is genuinely interested, and unpack your thoughts. You often come to realize what it is in your life that is causing your psychosis. Along with her experience to facilitate your walk towards well being, she is above all, a good listener. And that might be the most important part of your visit. Aside from her medically, and scholarly sound point of view. She comes across as just another human with problems just like us all. No better off, or worse off. On a unrelated note, her smile is infectious.
