As I said she gives you the best care that's possibly given under her jurisdiction put it this way but otherwise she's a beautiful person she knows what I'm talking about and she's willing to listen to you and try to take care of the problem sometimes problems just don't go away overnight I need to talk to Jacob James it takes time and we're going to get everything taken care of and yes I would recommend her to any other person
