Dr. Ahrendt spent a great deal of time with us explaining my options. And was very sensitive to my concerns regarding my rheumatoid arthritis issues.

Dr. Arendhts was very professional while maintaining her compassion and empathy for me. I never felt like I didn't matter to her than anything other than a human being who needed her help. She never made me feel like just a number, or just another patient. Much appreciation is felt for Dr. Arendhts care!
