    Katherine was personable and open about the process and procedure. She wasn't biased toward one decision or the other. She laid all info out and allowed me to think through it. MDs can be set in their ways, but Kathrine was a breath of fresh air in meeting, consulting with, answering questions, and helping me feel comfortable about the place, process, people, and outcomes. I'm excited to be her patient!
