She was patient and kind. Took the time to explain my diagnosis in terms that I would understand...and didn't mind the interruptions when I told her i still didn't understand. And then she would explain it again. After she spoke with us initially, she gave us some time to think about what she had said and the opportunity to ask more questions if necessary. She was excellent.
