There are many moments, but not just one. It continues to be superlative Everything with Dr. Monroe after many years. I think it must be between 8-10 years or more that I ve had the good fortune to have her for my doctor.

When Dr. Monroe told me that she was glad to see me. Not many people care whether they see me or not, but she cares. She accepts me as I am. Brian at the front desk is awesome. He is competent, pleasant and very helpful when I call.

My PA knows my chart, remembers our progress or need for progress, and provides me with "homework". He doesn't try to change what works, and doesn't just throw medication my way but works holistically to help my symptoms improve if needed.
