without a doubt I felt like I was talking to my own primary doctor. Dr Caldwell made me feel comfortable from the moment I spoke to her. she went over my records and talked with me about options and let me choose which would be best to start first sense I have several things going on. that really made me feel good. She also let me know that my primary doctor is doing everything that they would have done first. Makes me feel extremely lucky.
