Yesterday, I met Dr. Edelman and I received on my first visit a feeling like they knew me already. On a time like this It was very positive from the minute I walked into his office. This is the type of doctor I like to go. You feel like part of a family and not like other ones that seems you are talking to a computer. I will say thank you Lord for given me the chance to meet him.
