I wish that everyone that I have dealt with in life were as thorough and concerned about me as *Dr. Atala is. She is a true gem!

Dr. Atala and Dr. Klein. What can I say except for that they actually seem to care about me and my recovery? Wonderful, caring people that want to see their patients get well and help those of us who fall down.
