We travel from Louisiana monthly for post transplant care bc April and Dr Sarrell are incredibly gifted at what they do. They are so smart, so knowledgeable and also so compassionate and cheerful. They communicate so clearly. They listen so well. They have so thoroughly investigated any problems. They do not paint an unrealistic PollyAnna picture of recovery- yet we always leave their offices encouraged and hopeful. They are both delightful people and we thank God for the skilled compassionate care they have shown us this past year. I cannot sing their praises enough! ( saw April this time but we alternate with Dr Sarrell)
