    Based on my experiences and observations I knew I wanted treatment that didn’t include surgery. I could tell the medical staff probably felt that would be a preferred solution but they honored my wishes (without attitude-something I’ve experienced in the past) and offered a more conservative approach. As someone who has worked in healthcare over 40 I have a true appreciation for those who don’t take a patient’s decline of procedure as a personal insult or failure. They explained the options, I think I was successful in acknowledging I understood, so they did their part As a result, I left a happy patient feeling confident that when/ if my situation changes and I opt for surgery that I will be in the hands of caring, competent staff. This is my second medical visit. I was seen in the past by a different specialist. So far you a batting 100% with your medical staff. Keep doing what you do because it’s working.
