My provider was amazing; he's incredibly gentle but very able to see what is good or wrong with my body, understanding, encouraging, and also asked a few questions to know a bit more about me as a person. The person who was with him was also so sweet, understanding, and always focused on what the doctor or I needed. She held my hand as I was going through pain, and I felt very cared for by this team. The doctor was very concerned and focused on having me see a specialist as soon as possible to be able to take care of my issue, and he told me he'll be there as well to take care of me.
