Dr Kristo was kind and gentle. His student was also wonderful. I appreciate their time very much.However, I, too, am a medical professional. I knew just about everything Dr Kristo had to say. I learned nothing.I walked away from my 120mile drive being told to go to bed at the same time every day. I have not slept through a night or day in 17 years.I will definitely be trying to keep a better route for my sleep hygiene practice, but I'm quite disappointed there was nothing further to be done.

Each question answered captured Kristo's positive qualities, except for the fact that he personally follows up and pushes the process to meet my needs as a patient.
