Dr. Lee took my history. It was a long history and she was patient with me and asked in-depth questions as we went along. I appreciate Dr. Lee's questioning, attention to detail and that she looked up my Community Regional Medical Center of Fresno's 2003 history. Dr. Lee had the 2003 test history ready for Dr. Berube to review. I didn't even have those 2003 test results. So I learned a lot from that history too. Thank you, Dr. Lee. Dr. Berube took her time in explaining my condition and the genetics behind it which I appreciated as a retired High School Admin/Science teacher. She went through my history with me and explained things as she went on a level I understood. She made it very comfortable for me to ask her questions. I had a lot of questions, and she answered them and genuinely want to make sure I understood correctly. I really appreciated that she checked up on me the next day by telephone to see if I had any questions and that I understood that I should not take a certain medication. Dr. Berube came across as very caring and accessible. Thank you, Dr. Berube! You brought my anxiety level way down! And I really appreciated that you called me the next day. You could have put it in your MyHealth notes, but you took the time to call me. Thank you for doing that!
