I experienced you as kind, clear and direct in your communication, and collaborative in planning the treatment plan and schedule. Even through the Covid-19 shut down you stayed in touch to assure understanding. I appreciate the financial arrangements you made to offer therapy even when the insurance request was denied.Bob
