Francis has great communication skills, is a good listener, and takes pride in providing positive patient care with no judgement. Since Francis has 7 years of experience working with adolescents under the age of 17, she has a way to interact therapeutically and became a great advocate to children and adolescents. She is able to determine the needs of the patient and provide holistic care. She is understanding and provides patient education during each visit. There is no wrong question. It is better to ask than to not understand your symptoms.
