    Absolutely loved Dr Wada and her Fellow. They were both very informed about my case and very caring. They both spent time explaining options and potential diagnoses. They treated me like a peer as I am a nurse and asked me how I felt about the treatment they were recommending. Would highly recommend them to anyone I know.
