"Met her recently. She was knowledgeable and very pleasant. She answered all questions that I had and ordered an extra test to rule out an issue that may have worsened if it was not checked out! Fortunately there is no problem right now, but she created a baseline for monitoring which I believe is good practice. I will definitely return!"
