Again - same - the doctors and assistants listened - and took me seriously. Dr was very precise in his instructions and outcome of my surgery - what to look for - what the side effects were going to be - etc! I will recommend him to ANY person I know that suffers my same symptoms!

He was very concerned. Listened intently. He DIDN'T rush me or he seemed rushed. Clear explanations. Gave me great hope!

I have had some really bad experiences in the past dealing with drs and hospitals. This was the first time I really felt comfortable being a trans person at a drs office. I hope to move closer to Vanderbilt so I can have them as my primary care. I don't want to go anywhere else.

The Dr. even called me to answer a question I had after leaving the appointment.
