Kept referring to another treatment that I was not interested in doing. It would have been a waste of my time & money & I'd still have to do surgery.

*Dr. Ford had excellent communication skills; exhibited compassion and empathy; not rushed; very thorough follow up visit.

The time she spent with me was short it gave me what I needed to understand. Then she called me (directly) and spoke with me regarding my blood work. The time she spent giving me such detailed information seemed so outstanding that I have bragged to my family and friends regarding Dr. Molly's care of me. We are all loving her for now.
