Dr Lightfoot listened to my concerns about medications and explained how they worked together. He listened to every concern and addressed it to my great satisfaction. I was pleased that he brought me in for a check soon after my discharge

Dr and nurse answered all my questions with patience. I had additional questions and the nurse got the Dr to come back in room. He came back in with no hesitation and took his time to answer me.
