I assigned #9 score reflecting Dr Kenton’s actual medical response about me. My concern is about A LOT OF STATIC from Dr Kenton’s telephone. All information exchanged successfully, but tele communication from Dr Kenton’s office in Lake Forest sometimes difficult to understand through static. When a clinical team representative called less than 30 min later, NO STATIC INTERFERENCE.
