[...]. I am just so very happy with this Doctors office. I don't ever wanna lose Dr. Cicilline. I've never had a doctor that I am more comfortable with and feel like I can talk to her about anything and we actually have a conversation and she looks at me when she talks she's not staring into the computer that's a huge pet peeve of mine. I've had doctors in the past that talk to me almost like a robot, and just staring into a computer and don't even look at you when they're talking to you! Never experienced that at this office, and that means so much to me especially with all the different issues dealing with.

When she told me she thought I should get an MRI because of the pain I was experiencing, she asked me "what do you think? I told her I agreed because I was concerned about the symptoms I was having. So I was really happy that she wanted to do an MRI as a result.

It was the end of the day, and the MD was finishing up her busy day. Despite that, she kindly listened to my concern and even carefully reviewed the medical record of the patient's sibling to figure out what was happening to [...] (patient). It was her professional care and commendable judgment that made [...] recovery super fast. [...] that treatment saved [...] from going to ER. Then the MD went on to do internet search and kindly look for a med lab that is open after 5pm. Although all the labs closed at 5pm, I was pleasantly surprised by her kindness. That Friday, the MD called me. Then she asked me to take photographs of [...] face/body to examine her recovery--and to send them to her [...]. All her actions that week exceeded my expectations.
