Dr Celestin is one of the best physicians I've ever met and I know lots and lots of physicians because I'm a nurse. I've worked in lots of different areas and the way Dr Celestin comes across is great. she has a great bed side manner, listens, remembers my son and asks about him at every visit, she's light hearted and will even laugh, all to relax and make the patient feel more comfortable. you don't feel like she's rushing to get moving to the next patient. when she's in the room with you you really feel your the only patient she has that day and that would make any patient feel special.
