Dr. Anton demonstrated very careful listening, reflected in his post-visit progress note which included accurate descriptions of my presenting concern, his assessment of what was likely causing the problem, and his immediate action plan. I appreciated the precision of his written expression which might be attributable to the fact that he seemed to be "fully present" during the clinical interview (rather than attempting to type while simultaneously listening to the patient). Also, Dr. Anton, his nurse and his administrative assistant have created an office atmosphere marked by affability and calmness. I feel fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Anton.
