Care provider was hesitant about affirming my gender and pronouns, told me that she would use my pronouns and then immediately mispronouned and misgendered me. Was somewhat dismissive with my experience with her staff.

Dr Anderson and her staff were great. we needed to get prior authorization for a procedure on short notice and they definitely went an extra mile for me with multiple phone calls to my insurance company to get the approval through.
