Dr. Irene was personable and interacted with both of us. She made a point to explain things in a way that a 8 year old could understand. She asked what questions I had or that the patient had for her. She called before we could get out of the parking lot to cover a point she intended to emphasize before we left. It was obvious Dr. Irene was passionate about her job and patient care.
