He was exceedingly thorough! I felt he knew my history even though this was my first time meeting him--he obviously looked at my history even finding tests conducted outside NM. I felt I had his full attention and did not feel rushed one bit. I could tell--even without seeing his mouth because of the mask wearing we all do-- compassion in his eyes and forehead when I shared a story.
