Dr. Shelnitz is very polite and professional. We discussed my Orencia medication even though it's for arthritis, not skin related. We also discussed the fact that Orencia put me in a higher risk group for the Covid-19 virus. I already knew this but appreciated her concern beyond her particular area of expertise. Good job!
