My first visit with Dr. Crawford went better than expected. I was able to talk out my challenges and expectations withher without feeling pressured. She listened to me and took many notes. I could tell that she's serious about my concerns and willing to address each concern. I don't feel that she'll waste my precious time. I felt comfortable with her and can't wait until my next session.
