      It's so heartening to have providers who clearly care and are willing and able to provide help for issues I've been dealing with for over a year. Again waiting over 6 months for an appointment feels cruel.

      Dr. Lee expressed genuine care and concern for my condition. Spent a great deal of time with me and truly listened to my health history and offered a treatment plan. Did not offer options for care. Follow up was not scheduled, so I am assuming I need to call.
