She's a kind and empathic physician; her first response was one of sympathy and yet, it was abundantly clear that she is a medical expert—and that, too, was very reassuring. She achieved a perfect balance of compassionate physician—taking into consideration my suggestions and needs and then suggesting a flexible treatment plan that is also the recommended medical course (avoid oral antibiotics if possible).
