I am pleased with the provider. I do feel providers need to get a feel for the customers desire to try to resolve or correct issues naturally or through a change in habits / lifestyle rather than immediately jumping to medication. Everyone is not wanting to just take a pill. I like to understand why I have a condition and work to correct it naturally. When I first started going to this provider I didn't feel that for her. It's taken her a few years but I feel like we have a better understanding now.
