My grandparents get easily confused when it comes to medical issues. They were very nervous coming into the appointment as they were still trying to wrap their heads around everything happening with my grandfather. They returned from the appointment and couldn't have sung higher praises for the provider as well as his entire staff. They each took their time with my grandparents and made them feel heard. I'm forever grateful for the time and information provided for them.
