As a ... myself, I am aware of the need to ask some questions that can be uncomfortable during visits. My provider did not ask me about depression, although I take medication for it.

I'm a new patient to this doctor. So far I'm very pleased with Dr. P. she was very compassionate and really listened to me- this dr was a second opinion for my new diagnosis. I look forward to working with Dr. P in the future.
