This doctor listens, but also explains her rationale in a very logical and easy-to-understand manner. She is sympathetic to a patient who, perhaps, seeks to take the least amount of medicine. I've also heard on a couple of occasions that she has worked behind the scenes to advance my particular case. In other words, she is not the type of doctor who forgets about you the minute you leave the office. I wholeheartedly recommend this doctor. And that is coming from someone who has seen many doctors.
