excellent provider, takes time to understand needs and questions.

Said nothing about my recent visit to Froedtert IR when I was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment which was the main reason we made an appointment with a Geriatric Pysh. Extremely disappointed with his summary of the visit. It did nothing to help the family make future decisions on accommodations for likely mental health care.
