Dr Kontak showed great care and patience in addressing my concerns. She discussed options for further tests which could provide more insight while assuring me that my symptoms were not cause for alarm. She could have dismissed me with no further action but given my family history she allowed me the option of further tests. She did not seem rushed at all and took more time with me than I expected.
