Dorothy "Dottie" is probably the very first provider that made me feel like a human being and that I matter. She recognized my fears. And when I didn't understand she actually showed me pictures! She was very at ease which made me feel relaxed and at ease. She noted on my test results that my issue needed to be addressed immediately. I had no idea. She spent as much time that I needed to feel confident that WE had a plan to address my health issues.
