doctor achilefu was extremely kind and caring. she explained what she felt was ailing me very well and helped me to get proper care. she included me in my treatment by explaining side effects of various prescriptions that would help with my condition as well as their benefits and helped me to find the prescription to best fit my condition. i was very happy and satisfied with the amount of care and concern with my well being. i would highly recommend my care provider to anyone needing a true professional that does everything she can for her patients.
