She was patient and understanding and nonjudgmental. She never questioned anything I said I may have needed and I felt completely heard and acknowledged. Both my doctor and the nurse that took my blood and gave me my tetanus shot might be one of the most engaging and warm people to help me and I’m so thankful.
