    It's degrading that Dr Carlos uses the term "diaper" for adult diapers. It would be better if he uses the term "Depends" even though that is a certain brand but "diaper" sounds degrading and disrespectful.

    Great experience as usual. My regular care is in rural Alaska where I live. I speak to Dr Carlos as needed only a few times a year. Am planning in person visit in September.
