He is calm, doesn't seem rushed, is easy to talk to. Answered all my questions ever so patiently and, even with our masks, I could see the kindness and understanding in his eyes. All of this has to be put in the context that patients are there because of a diagnosis you would genuinely not want to have.

Dr. Tomic has overseen the follow up of my experience having Cryptogenic Occupational Therapy in January 2018, at point when the doctor I had left practicing at Northwestern.
