      *Melinda was fabulous! She listened to why I came, discussed potential treatment at length, treated areas that needed attention and identified a potential basal cell cancer on my nose - she was right - and outlined possibilities and how they should be addressed.

      PA was very caring, she explained everything to the best of her knowledge. I would like to see more of an integrative medicine treatment side to this, but maybe there was not enough time to discuss other alternatives in combination with traditional medicine. But overall, I believe she is trying to help me as much as possible.
