Dr Ajroud-Driss combined in-depth expertise, kindness, and emphathy. She delivered the tough reality of a neuromotor disease diagnosis while carefully injecting a credible sense of a positivity, perspective and hope. On top of that, she took the time to explain the reasoning for the assessments and went over predictive models to follow the evolution of the disease. ..As a patient, I came to the visit in denial and left with the power of knowledge of what is known and unknown. Going though this Journey with Dr Ajroud-Driss will give me the chance for managing the condtion with cutting-edge knowledge and dignity.
