The regimen I am on is fantastic. I had to work through trial and error to determine what was best for me but I think I mastered it, thanks to you.

I am looking forward to our next consult. “AMAZING! VERY SMART, KIND, HELPFUL!!!I interviewed two doctors prior to Lauraine and both were unacceptable. One was even off the wall drunk.
