I ended up being a high needs patient due to three other docs missing my condition, so I was untreated for over a year. We went over all my options, and she really took the time to make sure I understood each one. Both risks and benefits were explained and I never felt pressured to choose one. Possibly one if the best things was that I never felt as if I was wasting her time or annoying her with questions. I really need to understand all my choices before I can move and she was great throughout. I would recommend her to anyone.
