    Dr. Loftus is exceptional in all the above. She has a way of making one feel important as well as included in decision making without losing any prestige of her knowledge of the science and its application medicine. Others could learn from her. She's a superior practitioner - I thought this when I saw her first a couple of years ago and that was repeated yesterday. The Best.

    Good but waiting for an answer before I start using prescribed medicine.

    Post OP complications should have been dealt with in a manner that I had a contact to discuss the problems I experienced.
    Nov 18, 2022
    The possible adverse effects of this procedure were understated. The hope for procedural success overrode the transparency of what the adverse effects could be. I would never have this procedure done again.
