For the first time I felt like at ease with the provider. Dr. Ozanto took in all my concerns, and her concerns. Explain more options if the options she did not give work. This was the first time I have gone to the clinic and a doctor showed that they cared, and will work with me to see what will work to get my iron back to safe measures.
