Gynecological Problem Visit

She is an excellent listener and referred to my concerns in relaying her diagnosis. She answered all my questions clearly. She repeated her instructions. She was not judgmental, even when calmly telling me to stop a grooming practice. She seems kind but did not talk down to me, an elderly woman.
