The technicians who took iunutual information ration were nice, fine. The nurse practitioner who came in for more details was kind and helpful. Dr. Mason was very helpful. He clearly laid out what my issue was, listened to my information, then laid out several scenarios and was very understand when I explained my fears about repeating the process. We selected one option and I hope its going to work out.
