she listened carefully to what I told her and asked questions to make sure she understood. Then she looked at my history and did a thorough exam before making a treatment plan with all information gathered. She did a great job! I was improved before night and much better by the next day thanks to the medication she prescribed.

I came away with a referral and written info on a POSSIBLE diagnosis. Dr. Via was careful not to say she could diagnose, as it may require an MRI. My previous x-ray showed no known cause of knee pain. I'm grateful for a communicative physician!
