Everything was good and any concerns that I had were discussed. However, the change in my magnesium chloride was not discussed, it was just reported on the After Visit Summary.

February 23, 2018

I met Dr. Shah for the first time in this visit and her was very interested in all my health issues, not just the onesI was there about. This made me feel assured he would provide very accurate and informed guidance on how to successfully continue improving my health outcomes. I would recommend him to needing his expertise.
