As always Dr Staffen questioned my Father on how he was feeling and any concerns he had. Dad discussed his tiredness at age 86 and frustration with not able to work outside in the garden as much as he did when younger. Dr Staffen reviewed Dad's meds and discussed how they worked with his body functions and why he feels tired at age 86. He advised Dad to be very careful in the garden, do a little activity and then rest. Dad was comforted by the discussion of how the meds affect his body and greatly appreciated Dr Staffen's genuine concern for his well being. As always Dr Staffen ends the visit by telling Dad if any issue or concern arises before next visit to call the office anytime. Dr Staffen's compassion gives both Dad and I total peace of mind, he is always just a phonecall or short drive away and we are very thankful.
