I brought a book expecting to wait a long time, but was seen right away. Dr. Maini reviewed my file with me. He was able to explain my results and how we would proceed in a way that was easy to understand. I didnt feel like I was being preached at or scolded. I left feeling better educated and not like I would be blindly following a doctor's orders.
