I wasn't too fond of the nurse practitioner we saw on this day. I would prefer to not have any further appointments with her. Also, making parents wear a mask and not making their child wear a mask defeats the purpose, especially When you are with your child 24/7. If they get sick chances are you as a parent will get sick as well.

We felt that they get a good job explaining medically what was going on, but not in terms in which the normal person would understand. I actually had to call back speak with the other nurse practitioner, Stephanie who did a fantastic job explaining everything more thoroughly in a manner in which and everyday person can fully understand the condition with their child.
