I unfortunately have quite a few complicated medical issues but I am here to tell you this is one of the first time in years and years and years that I have had a physician actually sit down and talk to me with respect and dignity and not talk down to me and explain every detail about my medication. The doctor was legitimately concerned about me as a person how I felt what I was thinking what I was feeling and allowed me to ask any question that I had. Excellent excellent excellent!
