I have moved a distance but I continue to drive and keep Dr F because I feel like I am a partner in my health and choices. He takes time, explains listens to my concerns and included in decisions of different options/choices and know the plus and minus of choices. That is absolutely NOT true of other doctors or NP or PA I have encountered. For me, it is a important factor in my choice of providers. I plan to continue with Dr F for as long as he practices which I hope is many more years.
