My Nurse/Assistant who took my vitals, asked questions, weight/height, etc. was awesome. She was friendly, kind, professional, reassuring, calming. I could not have asked for a better Doctor than Dr. Kilam. He too was kind, professional, friendly, explained things thoroughly on my level, took time with me. I'm greatful that he has taken me on as a patient.
