I had an exceptional experience as my first time. I felt heard and all of my reasons for my visit were addressed thoroughly. He immediately was able to diagnose, and it was clear that he was knowledgeable and experienced. He wasalso very culturally sensitive to my experiences. I'm more than satisfied!
