I like the fact I am treated as a person not just another number. With my condition patience and understanding is key!
Dr. Sam did some great research on Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease medication along with anticonvulsants and how they interact with each other. Trying to make it easier to take multiple medications without a bad interaction.
Dr. Sam is patient, friendly, polite and very professional. She takes the time to explain things to me.
Good, very positive.
