The 'care provider' spoke down to us and implied that I should accept his advice regardless of my concerns.

I saw this provider after having been brushed off by a provider at AHN. This provider was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. He answered my questions and thoroughly explained things. I look forward to continuing to come to him for my neurology needs.
