I am moving to a new drug; however, the CRNP was unfamiliar and really didn't want to help me understand how it might impact me. Too focused on tests to take.

Connie Root, CRNP, has always been very personable and makes me feel comfortable asking whatever questions I have. She is good about explaining answers and responding in a way I can understand, giving example scenarios for given treatments, etc.
