She takes a very frightening diagnosis and all it's issues and makes a plan so easy to follow and understand. I am a retired RN and not used to being the patient.

I have not been feeling well and she is so cool about understand me and showing a lot of patience. I really believe she understands some things without me having to actually say it. Sometimes, when I'm getting anxious or scared, she gets it. I can feel it. She gives me good advice and I am following it. I'm just grateful that she's going to keep me around. Thank you Dr. Barnett and to your team, also. God Bless you !
