They confirmed my appointment on ZD but actually rescheduled me to later in the day. They also had me see the PA instead of Dr. La Cognata (tisk tisk). I told Olivia, but, feel free to follow up. Loved the PA I saw!

He is incredibly understanding of all of my needs. From the first time we met he was warm and gracious. My experiences with him are almost like being with a friend and not my doctor. He is an absolute pleasure to be around.
