This provider was professional and personal. She cultivated trust with her knowledge and calm expertise at the same time expressing interest in me as a person and cultivating a relationship. I was extremely impressed by her and her staff. I felt that I was incredibly well cared for and if I had any questions, concerns, or difficulties getting those issues addressed was easy and timely. She and her staff have been there for me throughout this special care experience and I would highly recommend her as a provider for anyone I know in need of the same surgery services.
