I walked out hugging Mary Lou. She never gave up listening to me and after her guidance, recommendations and care, I can say with a smile I am feeling like myself again. She was absolutely right about my diagnosis. I fully trust her with my life. I appreciate the intentionality she shows when educating her patients on options. She makes arriving to decisions lessStressful in an already anxiety-filled environment. I'm grateful to have found her and Vanderbuilt.
