    I'm glad you asked. She is what a physician should be. (She is not my primary care provide, but is my regular doctor for this specialty.) She rook the time to ask me of any problems and concerns, and, knowing that I am an 85 year old self isolating woman, she checked if I had family or friends to rely on, if I was keeping in touch with people, and showed real concern. I could not ask for more and I hope she keeps on forever.
