Dr. Bednard is outstanding. He listens, spends time to understand and explains his recommendations and why he is making them. The previous time he saw me he asked "If I suggest you stop taking this medication, would you do it?" which to me well describes his approach. It's my health, he wants to improve it and he's making suggestions on how to do so - not giving orders/talking down to me. Bravo.

I particularly appreciated the amount of time both the PA and Dr. Bednard spent with me. Frankly, it surprised me. Dr. Bednard really made an effort to connect with me, and he succeeded admirably. He changed one of my prescriptions which was working but the change made it work better. That was also much appreciated.
