She listened to everything I had to say. Didn’t miss anything! She included me in decisions & will in the future when my labs come back. She is down to Earth and just understands. She talks in an easy to understand way. I know medical terms, but she talks to me as if we are 2 friends chatting about an illness. I’m glad she was the one I saw. It was supposed to be someone else, who I’m sure is just as perfect. I have several doctors at Northwestern and I would not change them for anything!!!

Everything I mentioned above. Also she didn’t talk down to me and I was comfortable asking questions. I feel that she will be honest but kind if she has to give me bad news, and that is important to me. She seems very genuine and she really seems to care about finding me some answers. She did all this without freaking me out and my anxiety was off the chain so that’s saying a lot! Her demeanor put me at ease and she listened to me.
