We “connected” right away on our first meeting. Dr Jivan presented me with a treatment and follow up plan. His ability to express his excitement and enthusiasm for my progress has gone a long way in relieving my anxiety over my original diagnosis.

Everyone was nice, informative, and concerned about my well-being. Only negative I would say was making me quite nervous when the two ladies were trying to put the IV in me. Obviously one was in training which I totally promote but they just didn't seem too sure about the procedure and having things prepared for it.
