Fabulous info

It’s so hard to pull this good info out of our doctors sometimes. I’ve tried more than once, only to have the last doc just smile and stay silent. I don’t believe anyone would ever get a response like that from you! You are truly helping patients with issues we will ALL have at some point as women. Thanks for being so mission driven. I’m spreading the word!
