Dr Mary Mulcahy was very professional, knowledgeable & thorough in her expertise; informative, excellent in communicating. She made us feel very comfortable with asking questions to get a better understanding. She also answered most of the time so I did understand. (She sometimes answered with medical or technical terms or descriptions that would have been better understood in laymen terms.) After leaving her office I felt my brother is definitely in the right place for his care. I may have been doubtful when I arrived, but was very sure when I left. It was a great & comforting feeling.
